This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the

I. The Court is 78 feet long and 27 feet wide. It is 
divided across the middle by a net, the ends of which are 
attached to two posts, A and B, standing 3 feet outside 
of the court on either side. The height of the net is 3 feet 
6 inches at- the posts, and 3 feet in the middle. At each end 

of the court, parallel with the net, and 39 feet from it, are 
drawn the base lines D E and F C, the ends cf which are 
connected by the side lines D F and E C. Halfway 
between the side lines, and parallel with them, is drawn the 
half court line I H, dividing the space on each side of the 
net into two equal parts, the right and left courts. On each 
side of the net, at a distance of 21 feet from it, and parallel 
with it, are drawn the service lines K L and M N. 

See back pages of Guide for diagram of single and double 





2. The Balls shall measure not less than 2}4 inches, 
nor more than 2 9-16 inches in diameter; and shall weigh 
not less than I 15-16 ounces, nor more than 2 ounces. 


3. The choice of sides, and the right to serve in the first 
game, shall be decided by toss; provided that, if the winner 
of the toss choose the right to serve, the other player shall 
have choice of sides, and vice versa, or the winner of the toss 
may insist upon a choice by his opponent. If one player 
choose the court, the other may elect not to serve. 

4. The players shall stand on opposite sides of the net; 
the player who first delivers the ball shall be called the 
server, and the other the striker-out. 

5. At the end of the first game the striker-out shall 
become server, and the server shall become striker-out; and 
so on alternately in all the subsequent games of the set and 
following sets. 

6. The server shall serve with both feet behind, i. e., fur- 
ther from the net than the base line and within the limits of 
the imaginary continuation of the centre service and the 
side lines. It is not a fault if one only of the server's feet do 
not touch the ground at the moment at which the service is 
delivered. He shall place both feet upon the ground im- 
mediately before serving and shall not take a running nor a 
walking start. He shall deliver the service from the right 
and left courts alternately, beginning from the right, in each 
of his service games even though odds be given or owed. 

7. The ball served must drop between the service line, 
half-court line, and side line of the court, diagonally opposite 
to that from which it was served. 


8. It is a Fault ii the ball served drop in the net, or be- 
yond the service line, or out of court, or in the wrong court; 
or if the server do not stand as directed by law 6. If the 
server, in attempting to serve, miss the ball altogether, it does 
not count a fault, but if the ball be touched, no matter how 
slightly, by the racket, a service is thereby delivered, and the 
laws governing the service at once apply. 

9. A fault cannot be taken. 

. 10. After a fault the server shall serve again from the 
same court from which he served that fault, unless it was a 
fault because he served from the wrong court. 

11. A fault cannot be claimed after the next service is 

1 2. The server shall not serve till the striker-out is ready. 
If the latter attempt to return the service, he shall be deemed 

13. A service or fault delivered when the striker-out is 
not ready counts for nothing. 

14. The service shall not be volleyed, that is, taken, be- 
fore it has touched the ground. 

15. A ball is in play on leaving the server's racket, except 
as provided for in law 8, and remains in play till the stroke 
is decided. 

16. It is a good return, although the ball touch the net; 
but a service, otherwise good, which touches the net shall 
count for nothing. 

17. The server wins a stroke if the striker-out volley the 
service, o» if he fail to return the service or the ball in play; 
or if he return the service or the ball in play so that it drops 
outside of his opponent's court; or if he otherwise lose a 
stroke, as provided by law 20. 

1 8. The striker-out wins a stroke if the server serve two 
consecutive faults; or if he fail to return the ball in play; 
or if he return the ball in play so that it drops outside of his 
opponent's court; or if he otherwise lose a stroke as pro- 
vided by law 20. 


19. A ball falling on a line is regarded as falling in the 
court bounded by that line. 

20. Either player loses a stroke if the ba'l touch him, or 
anything that he wears or carries, except his racket in the 
act of striking; or if he touch the ball with his racket more 
than once; or if he touch the net or any of its supports 
while the ball is in play; or if he volley the ball before it 
has passed the net. 

21. In case a player is obstructed by any accident, not 
within his control, the ball shall be considered a "let." 
But when a permanent fixture of the court is the cause of the 
accident, the point shall be counted. The benches and 
chairs placed around the court shall be considered permanent 
fixtures. If, however, a ball in play strike a permanent fix- 
ture of the court (other than the net or posts) before it 
touches the ground, the point is lost; if after it has touched 
the ground, the point shall be counted. 

22. On either player winning his first stroke, the score is 
called 15 for that player; on either player winning his sec- 
ond stroke, the score is called 30 for that player; on either 
player winning his third stroke, the score is called 40 for that 
player; and the fourth stroke won by either player is scored 
game for that player, except as below. If both players have 
won three strokes, the score is called deuce ; and the next 
stroke won by either player is scored advantage for that 
player. If the same player win the next stroke, he wins the 
game; if he iose the next stroke the score returns to deuce, 
and so on until one player wins the two strokes immediately 
following the score of deuce, when game is scored for that 

23. The player who first wins six games wins the set; 
except as below : If both players win five games the score is 
oalled games all; and the next game won by either player is 


Scored advantage game for that player. If the same player 
win the next game, he wins the set; if he lose the next game, 
the score returns to games all ; and so on, until either player 
wins the two games immediately following the score of games 
all, when he wins the set. But the committee having charge 
of any tournament may in their discretion modify this rule by 
the omission of advantage sets. 

24. The players shall change sides at the end of the first, 
third and every subsequent alternate game of each set and 
at the end of each set, unless the number of games in such 
set be even. It shall, however, be open to the players by 
mutual consent and notification to the umpire before the 
opening of the second game of the match to change sides in- 
stead at the end of every set until the odd and concluding 
set, in which they shall change sides at the end of the first, 
third and every subsequent alternate game of such set. 
* 25. In all contests the play shall be continuous from the 
first service till the match be concluded; provided, however, 
that at the end of the third set either player is entitled to a 
rest, which shall not exceed seven minutes; and provided, 
further, that in case of an unavoidable accident, not within 
the control of the contestants, a cessation of play which shall 
not exceed two minutes may be allowed«between points; but 
this proviso shall be strictly construed, and the privilege never 
granted for the purpose of allowing a player to recover his 
strength or wind. The referee in his discretion may at any 
time postpone the match on account of darkness or condition 
of the ground or weather. In any case of postponement, the 
previous score shall hold good. Where the play has ceased 
for more than an hour, the prayer who at the cessation thereof 

•All matches in which women talce part in tournaments held under 
the auspices of the United States National Lawn Tennis Association 
shall be the best two in three sets, with a rest not exceeding seven 
minutes after the second set. 



was in the court first chosen shall have the choice of courts 
on the recommencement of play. He shall stay in the court 
he chooses for the remainder of the set. The last two sen- 
tences of this rule do not apply when the players change 
every alternate game as provided by law 24. 

26. If a player serve out of his turn, the umpire, as soon 
as the mistake is discovered, shall direct the player to serve 
who ought to have served. But all strokes scored betore 
such discovery shall be counted. If a game shall have been 
completed before such discovery, then the service in the next 
alternate game shall be delivered by the player who did not 
serve out of his turn, and so on in regular rotation. 

27, The above laws shall apply to the three-handed and 
four-handed games, except as below :— 




28. For the three-handed and four-handed games the 
court shall be 36 feet in .width ; 4^ feet inside the side lines, 
and parallel with them, are drawn the service side lines K M 
and L N. The service lines are not drawn beyond the point 
at which they meet the service side lines, as shown in the 

29. In the three-handed game, the single player shall 
serve in every alternate game. 

30. Jn the four-handed game, the pair who have the right 
to serve in the first game shall decide which partner shall do 
so; and the opposing pair shall decide in like manner for the 
second game. The partner of the player who served in the 
first game shall serve in the third, and the partner of the 
player who served in the second game shall serve in the fourth, 
and the same order shall be maintained in all the subsequent 
games of the set. 

31. At the beginning of the next set, either partner of the 
pair which struck out in the last game of the last set may 
serve; and the same privilege is given to their opponentf if\ 
second game of the new set. 

32. The players shall take the service alternately through' 
out the game; a player cannot receive a service delivered to 
his partner; and the order of service and striking out once 
established shall not be altered, nor shall the striker-out 
change cousts to receive the service, till the end of the 

33. It is a fault if the ball served do not drop between 
the service line, half-court line, and service side line of 
the court, diagonally opposite to that from which it was 

34. it is a fault if the ball served do not drop as provided 
in law 35, or if k touch the server's partner or anything he 
wears or carries.

When two players in different classes below scratch meet, 
the superior player shall start from scratch, and the odds 
received by the inferior player are as shown by the annexed 


table, No. I. To use the table, find in the diagonal line of 
figures the number representing the class of the superior 
player, then travel along the horizontal column until the 
vertical column is reached which bears at the top the number 
of the class of the inferior player. The odds specified at the 
intersection of the two columns are the odds required. 

Example. — If class 3 has to meet class 9, start from the 
figure 3 in the diagonal line of figures, and look horizontally 
until the vertical column is reached headed by the figure 9. 
The odds given at the point of intersection of the two 
columns (viz., 15 and 1-6 of 15) are the odds required. 

When the difference between the best and the worst 
players entered is great (say more than 30), it is desirable to 
handicap the best players at owed odds. The players above 
scratch fi. e., owing odds) should be classified as follows * — •

When the two players in different classes above scratch 
meet, the inferior player shall start from scratch, and the 
odds owed by the superior player are as shown by the 
annexed table, No. 2. 

This table is to be used in the same way as the former, the 
class of the superior player being looked for in the horizontal 
line of figures at the top, and the class of the inferior player 
in the diagonal line of figures. 

Example. — If class 12 (owe 30) meet class 7 (owe 15 and 
1-6 of 15), the former must owe the latter the odds of 4-6 
of 15. 

21. — In Championship matches and handicaps by classes, 
as above, advantage sets shall be played throughout. 

22. — The Committee may, whether appealed to by any 
Competitor or not, postpone the meeting or any match or part 
of a match if, in their opinion, the state of the weather, or 
of the light, or the condition of the ground, or other circum- 
stances, render it advisable to do so. In cases of postpone- 
ment, Law 25 must be strictly observed. 

Cases aind Decisions. 

By James Dwight. 

^T*HE following Cases and Decisions are intended to meet 
Vl/ questions often asked at Tournaments, and also to 
cover points apparently not provided for in the Laws. 

I. A player standing outside the court volleys the ball or 
catches it in his hand, and claims the stroke because the ball 
was certainly going out of court. 

Decision. — He loses the stroke. It makes no difference 
where he was standing. The return is presumed good until 
it strikes the ground outside of the court. 

II. A player is struck by the ball served before it has 
touched the ground, he being outside of the service court. 
How does it count? 

Decision. — The player struck loses the stroke. The 
service is presumably good until it strikes in the wrong court 
A player cannot take the decision upon himself by stopping 
the ball. If it is going to be a fault, he has only to get out 
of the way. 

III. The service is delivered before the striker-out is 
ready. He tries to return it and fails. Is he entitled to 
have it played over again ? 

Decision. — No. If he attempts to return the service he 
is deemed ready. 

IV. The striker-out calls "Not ready," for a second 
service. The ball strikes beyond the service line, and the 



striker-out claims that the fact that he was not ready makes 
no difference, since a fault cannot be returned, and, there- 
fore, that two faults have been served. 

Decision. — The second service goes for nothing. A 
player cannot call " Not ready," and then have the service 
count, or not, as suits his interests. 

V. A ball having been played over the net bounds back 
into the court from which it came. The player reaches over 
the net and plays it before it falls. Has he a right to do so? 

Decision. — Yes, provided he does not touch the net. He 
has a right to play the ball at any time from the moment it 
crosses the net into his court until it touches the ground a 
second time. 

VI. A ball is played into the net; the player on the 
other side, thinking that the ball is coming over, strikes at it 
and hits the net. Who loses the stroke ? 

Decision. — It is simply a question of fact for the umpire 
to decide. If the player touched the net while the ball was 
still in play he loses the stroke. 

VII Can a player follow a ball over the net with his 
racket, provided that he hits the ball on his own side of the 

Decision. — Yes, the only restrictions are that he shall not 
vc!ley the ball until it has crossed the net, and that he shall 
not touch the net or any of its supports. 

VIII. A player's racket slips out of his hand and flies 
into the net. Does he lose the stroke for hitting the net? 

Decision. — Yes,- if the ball be still in play. It does not 
matter if the racket be in a player's hand or not. 

IX. A player's racket leaves his hand, but meets the ball 
and returns it over the net. Is it a good return ? 

Decision. — Yes. There is no law requiring a racket to 


be m a player's hand when the ball is returned. It would 
unquestionably be a good return if the racket were held 
against the ground by a player's feet, and the ball bounded 
back off of it. 

X. A single match is played with a double net and inside 
posts. A player touches the net beyond the inside posts, 
and claims that he does not lose the stroke because there 
should be no net more than three feet outside of the court. 

Decision. — He loses the stroke. The net where ht 
touches it is part of the supports of the net. He might, per- 
haps, have objected to the arrangement of the net before the 

XI. A player returns the ball, and, rinding that he can- 
not stop himself before reaching the net, jumps over it. Is 
it a good return? 

Decision. — Law 4 requires that " the players shall stand 
on opposite sides of the net," and therefore the player invad- 
ing his opponet's court loses the stroke. 

XII. A ball passes outside the post of the net and strike 1 
in court. Is it a good return. 

Decision. — Yes. 

XIII. A ball going out of court hits the top of the port 
of the net and bounds into the opposite court. 

Decision. — It is a good return. 

XIV. The service or the ball in play strikes a ball lying 
in the court. Can it be returned? 

Decision. — Yes, if it be clear to the umpire that the right 
ball is returned. 

XV. The server claims that the striker-out mutt stand in 
the court. Is this necessary ? 

Decision. — No. The striker-out can stand wherever he 
pleases on his own side of the net 


XVI. A bystander gets in the way of a player who fails t* 
return the ball. May he then claim a let? 

Decision. — Yes, if, in the umpire's opinion, he was pre- 
vented by an accident beyond his control. For instance, if 
the ropes or the seats are allowed to be so near to the court 
that a player is interfered with by them, the stroke should 
not be played again, because the ropes and seats form part 
of the arrangements of the ground. If, however, a spectator 
passes in front of those seats, or places a chair nearer than 
the original line, and so interferes with a player, the stroke 
should be played again. 

XVII. A player is interfered with as above, and the um- 
pire directs the stroke to be played again. The server had 
previously served a fault. He claims the right to two 

Decision. — The fault stands. A let does not annul a 
previous fault. 

XVIII. A return hits the umpire, or his chair or stand, 
the player claims that the ball was going into court. 

Decisiott. — Stroke is lost. 

XIX A player receiving fifteen, serves from the left 
court. His opponent claims a fault. 

Decision. — It is a fault. The service starts from the 
right court under all circumstances. 

XX. At fifteen-all the server by mistake serves from the 
left court, he wins the stroke and serves again (a fault), 
the mistake is then discovered. Is he entitled to the pre- 
vious stroke? From which court should he serve next? 

Decision. — The previous stroke stands. A fault cannot 
be claimed after the next service, good or not, is delivered. 
The next service should be from the left court, the score 
being thirty-fifteen, and the server has served one fault. 



XXI. A player serves from the wrong court, he loses the 
stroke, and then claims that it was a fault. 

Decision. — If the stroke was played in his first service it 
is simply a fault, but if he serves twice into the wrong court 
he has served two faults, and lost the stroke. 

XXII. The score is five games all, and the umpire di- 
rects the players to play an advantage set. The advantage 
game has been won, when it is discovered that no advantage 
sets are to be played. What is to be done? 

Decision. — The set is won at the eleventh game. It is 
no part of the umpire's duty to decide on the conditions of 
the matches. 

XXIII. A player serves. He hears the umpire call, but 
cannot hear what he says. He knows that the only two 
things that the umpire should call are " fault" and " let," 
and that in neither case can the ball be in- play. He, there- 
fore, does not return it, only to find that the umpire has 
called " play." Has he any redress? 

Decision. — No. 

XXIV. The umpire calls "fault," and then instantly 
changes and says " play." The striker-out fails to return the 
ball, and he claims he was prevented by the umpire, and 
also that the umpire cannot change his decision. 

Decision. — The umpire should call a let and the service 
be taken again. 

XXV. A ball drops near a line, the player appeals, and 
the umpire calls "play." The player misunderstands the 
call and lets the ball fall. He then .claims to have the stroke 
played again. 

Decision. — The stroke stands. 

XXVI. — The ball strikes the ground close to a line the 
scorer scores the stroke against the striker. On appeal to the 


linesman, the latter decided that the ball was not out. 
Which decision stands? 

Decision. — The scorer has no right to consider a ball out 
until the linesman has called to that effect, therefore, the 
decision of the latter must be accepted. The decision of a 
linesman affecting his own line is final. 

XXVII. A return strikes the cord running along the bot- 
tom of the net and bounds over. Is it a good return? 

Decision. — Yes. 

XXVIII. During play a ball is thrown into court, and 
the ball in play strikes it or a player steps on it. May a let 
be claimed? 

Decision. — Yes. 

XXIX. The server's first service strikes his partner. 
Does he lose the stroke or is it a fault? 

Decision. — A fault. 

XXX. A player serves a fault and it is then discovered 
that it is his partner's service. Does the fault stand ? 

Decision. — Yes. 

XXXI. In a four-handed competition one player does 
not appear in time to play, and his partner claims to be 
allowed to play single-handed against the opposing p?ii 
May he do so? 

Decision. — No. 


npHE year has been a most successful one on account of the interest 
■ shown in the game and the increasing number of tournaments 
and club matches, etc. The game has spread very much in the South- 
ern states and in the farther West. 

On the other hand we failed to regain the Davis Cup in a year when 
England did not have her J>est players available. Also the Champion- 
ship of the country was a most uninteresting tournament. 

A number of the best players were absent and Lamed was left to win 
much as he pleased. As a matter of fact he played very well, and it 
was a pity there was no one to make him play his best.

TPlIE entries numbered 115 as against 117 last year. Alexander and 
* Hackett were among the most important of the absentees, but there 
remained B, C. Wright, Lamed, Little, Hobart, Behr, Le Roy, Mollen- 
hauer, Anderson, Johnson, Westfall, Palmer and others. Yet in a day 
the whole tournament fell to pieces. Little was detained by business. 
Wright did not appear, Behr lost to Palmer. 

In the top half, Lamed won easily one match after another, beating 
I. C. Wright, C. E. Sands, Westfall and Hobart. He played consist- 
ently well and probably could have played better, had there been any 
need of it. 

In the next quarter Johnson beat Anderson and lost to Hobart after 
a hard match, which took all five sets. 

In the top of the lower half Mollenhauer came out to the Semi-final. 
He had two hard matches, both with southern men. He lost a set back 
to Cowan Rodgers and to Russ. 

In the fourth quarter Palmer, after he had beaten Behr, lost a set to 
Pell and won from Niles after a very long match, to meet Le Roy in the 
Semi-final. Le Roy had a very easy draw and when he met Palmer, 
he beat him, 6-0, 6-2, 6-2. 

In the Semi-final he met Mollenhauer and won after a very hard match, 
of which more later. In the Final Lamed was too good for him and won 

Clothier was too lame to defend the Championship. To take the 
tournament a little more in detail. The first round brought 18 defaults, 
not so very many considering the number of entries. The only match 
of great importance was between Behr and Palmer, and was supposed 
to be a certainty for Behr. He lost the first set, 6-3, and won the second 
and third, 6-4, lost the fourth, 6-2, and the last set, 8-6. He did not do 
himself justice, but Palmer played very well indeed. 

Hobart beat Slocum, but he lost the first set. 

In the second round I. C. WVight beat F. C. Colston three sets to one. 
Gross put out Dabney in three sets. Anderson beat H. C. Johnson in 
a five-Fet match. Niles beat Tallant, but he lost the first (a love) Fet 
and the fourth. 


The Championship 62 

In the third round Lamed beat I. C. Wright very easily. Hobart 
beat Register. W. F. Johnson beat Gross in three sets, the first being, 

11-9. Mollenhauer lost one set to Cowan Bodgers. Palmer beat 
Clarence Pell and Niles beat Ames. 

In the fourth round Lamed and Hobart both won easily. Johnson 
beat Anderson, 3-1. Palmer beat Niles in a long five-set match in which 
there were three vantage sets. Niles was not in condition to do himself 
full justice. 

In the fifth round Lamed beat Westfall very easily. Hobart had a 
hard match with W. F. Johnson. Hobart won the first and second sets,, 
but he lost the next two at 5-7 each. The last one be took 6-2. In the 
lower half Mollenhauer beat Russ, 6-4, 11-9, 5-7, 6-4; a very hard fought 
match. Le Roy beat Palmer, 6-0, 6-2, 6-2. 

Lamed beat Hobart in the Semi-final without difficulty, 6-2, 6-2 6-1. 
He was so distinctly the better player that Hobart never had a chance. 
In the other match Mollenhauer apparently had Le Roy beaten. He 
won the first set, 6-4, and lost the second by the same score. Then he 
won the third with the loss of only one game and reached 5-2jin the 
fourth set. Four or five times he was within a stroke of the match, and 
after Le Roy had brought the score to games-all, Mollenhauer won the 
vantage game. That was his last success and Le Roy won three games 
and the set, 8-6. The score was now two-sets all, but the match was 
over for Mollenhauer apparently made no effort to win and lost the fifth 
set, 6-0. 

The Final went to Lamed easily. LeRoy played very well and 
pluckily, but be was out-classed. Lamed lost the first game and then 
won four in which LeRoy got only three strokes. LeRoy won the 
sixth game, but Lamed won the seventh and eighth both at deuce and 
the set, 6-2; 31 strokes to 18. 

In the second set Lamed won the first three games with the loss of 
three strokes, lost the fourth and fifth, and won the next three all at 
deuce, 6-2; 37 strokes to 26. 

LeRoy won four of the first five games, and Lamed won all the 
others in a row, two.being at deuce. 

Wallace Johnson won the Interscholastic Championship, beating 
Sweetzer in the Final, 7-5, 6-3, 7-9. 7-5.J 

Champions in Doubles of the United States 


East vs. West and West vs. Sooth. 

The Doubles Championships were played this year for the first time 
in three sections. The East at Longwooa, the West at Chicago, and the 
South at Atlanta. The matches between the winners of the three 
tournaments were played at the Crescent A. C. 

East vs. West. 

The first match was between Alexander and Hackett, the Western 
winners, and Clothier and Lamed, the Eastern loosers. The latter 
won the first game and the fourth, losing the second and third. They 
also took the seventh, but lost the next two and the set, 6-3. The second 
set was still more one-sided. Alexander and Hackett won six games, 
no one of which was deuce. They lost only seven strokes in the set. 

Alexander stood at 2-0, 3-1, 4-2 in the third set, but Clothier and Lamed 
won the next two games, making the score four all, and giving the match 
an eveness which it had not had. It was their last effort, for tney did not 
get a point in either of the next two games. 

Alexander and Hackett won 18 games to 8; 91 strokes to 55. The 
games were won with very little regard to the service. 

West vs. South. 

Grant and Thornton were no match for Alexander and Hackett. 
They got two games in the first set and brought two others to deuce. 
In the second set they won the first game only, though three other games 
were at deuce. In the last set they won the fourth game. The score 
was 6-2, 6-1, 6-1 — 18 games to 4, and 89 strokes to 53. They won only 
half as many games as Clothier and Lamed, but they won almost the 
same number of strokes, 53 to 55. 

As Wright had already played in the Eastern Doubles there was no 
Championship pair, to defend the title, and Alexander and Hackett took 
the Championship.

COR the third time the U. S. N. L. T. A. decided to send a team 
* to England to compete for the Davis Cup which was won by 
England in 1904, J;he ^English team being R. F. and H. L. Doherty 
with H. S. Mahoney (since having died) as a substitute. 

TThe American team finally selected, was composed of but two players, 
Beals C. Wright acting as captain and Karl H. Behr. Wright was the 
experienced member of A the team, having crossed on the two previous 
occasions and having won the Singles championship in 1905 and the 
Doubles in 1904, 1905 and 1906. Behr had been practically unheard 
of in the tennis world until 1906, when he showed exceptional form 
winning many tournaments. His best performances were at Longwood 
and Newport. At Longwood he beat Clothier rather easily and at 
Newport disposed of Larned in three straight sets. His athletic ex- 
perience at Yale gave him the necessary stamina for match play, conse- 
quently America was as well represented as in former years. 
_Our international committee decided that in order for the team to 
attain the best results, invitation tournaments shonld be held and the 
best players invited. 

This was done, and with excellent results, as after Wright and Behr 
had played at Merion, Manheim, Westchester, Ardsley, Knollwood 
and Crescent Athletic Club against all the leading players in both Sin- 
gles and Doubles they were in the best of condition although not at 
the top of their game as this could hardly be expected so early in the 

'The team sailed from Boston June 11 arriving in London, June 19. 
They were met by the officers of the English association and given a 
hearty welcome. No time was lost as next day they were practising 
at Wimbledon, where the English courts are located and championship 
is played. 

Wright and Behr were made members of Queens Club for a month. 
This afforded a pleasant change and also the privilege of playing against 
a professional who played a strong game. 

Unfortunately, England was not represented by their strongest team, 
as neither H. L. or K F. Doherty or Smith were in the game. It was 



International Cup Matches of 1907 91 

therefore practically a foregone conclusion that either Australia or 
America (the only two challengers) would heat the holders under these 

The Australians were represented by Norman Brookes, A. F. Wild- 
ing, Sharpe and Doust. Brookes and Wilding, however, were far su- 
perior to the others and played both Singles and Doubles. In 1905 
vVright had beaten Brookes twice and Wilding once. Brookes was 
challenger the same year for the English Championship and in 1907 
had improved a great deal. Wilding graduated from Cambridge Uni- 
versity, returned to Australia for a short time, but came back early and 
played in all the English tournaments as well as those on the continent 
and with remarkable success, losing but one or two. 

After three weeks of conscientious practice and training the teams 
were drawn to see who could play against each other. Five matches 
were to be played, four Singles and one Double. Wright was drawn 
to play Brookes first and Behr to play W'ilding. The match between 
the two captains, as expected was a struggle for the net and a battle of 
services. Wright started* serving and each won their service games 
until four-all was called when Brookes captured his opponents by two 
sharp volleys and by a net of Wright's after two well played points. 
Brookes won his own service and tne set, 6-4. The second set was a 
repetition of the first although the play was much faster as they were 
not as careful or cautious. Brookes won, 6-4 and the last set, 6-2. 
Wright tried to worry Brookes by changing pace and lobbing more 
frequently but the Australian was too sure. 

After the Brookes-Wright match Wilding and Behr took the centre 
court. Behr started by brilliant dashing play at the net, and sharp 
cross court shots; he won the set, 6-1. This did not bother Wilding 
as he was more aggressive and by keeping Behr from the net and using 
the reverse service to good advantage he won, 6-3. In the third set 
both players were struggling for the net and consequently won their 
service games. When two-all was called Behr won his opponent's 
service. The next two games also went against the service and gave 
Behr a commanding lead of 5-3 which he took advantage of and won, 
6-3. With two sets to one against him Wilding began to vary his game 
as the straight hard game seemed to be to Behr's liking. The change 
proved successful as he won the set, 7-5. In the final set both players 
were keyed to the highest pitch as it meant much for both to win, as the 
Doubles were in doubt, and Wright was expected to beatiWilding. 
By several brilliant drives and a good service Behr led three games to 

92 International Cup Matches of 1907 

two, but just here a change came. Bebr became fatigued and Wilding's 
wonderful endurance won him the match as Behr did not get another 
game, although he was determined and not for an instant gave up hopes. 
The match lasted two hours. 

The Doubles were scheduled for the second day's play and it looked 
rather dubious for America with two matches down. This fact, how- 
ever, seemed to make them play with more determination, or as the 
English writer of "Lawn Tennis and Badminton" puts it: "Our 
American friends < have, however, so often in the past shown a great 
capacity for playing up in similar difficult positions, and consequently 
we were not surprised when they once more proved their splendid worth 
and tenacious grit in facing a difficult situation. In fact, so dose did 
they go that if even in the end they failed to win, yet they went as near 
as it is perhaps possible to do without being returned the actual winners." 

The Doubles were gruelling from beginning to end, and took the 
entire five sets. Behr was slow to start while Wright played an accurate 
steady game being the mainstay for his side until Behr got on his game, 
the last two sets, which the Americans won with ease, 6-2, 6-3. The 
Australians were weak overhead, Brookes weak off the ground and they 
covered the court poorly but were strong at the net, and their services 
excellent. The Americans were more evenly matched and their tactics 

With two matches to one against them, Wright and Behr were more 
encouraged, and in the first match on the final day when Wright beat 
Wilding three sets to one great excitement prevailed, especially among 
the American spectators who were numerous and greatly interested. 
Wriejht won his match by out maneuvering his opponent. Wilding 
was better off the ground but he was given few of these shots for Wright 
with varied length and speed kept him running about. The beat 
affected both players more or less, but not enough to prevent them 
following up tie service on every occasion. It had been decided that 
if a match was not finished in the centre court by 4.30 the second match 
would be played on No. 2 court outside the grand stand, to be continued 
on the grand stand court immediately after the first match was finished. 
This happened in the Brookes-Behr match and when they entered the 
court, much to the surprise of all, the score stood one set love for Behr. 
The change did not seem to he to Bel r's liking as he lost the next three 
sets, ending America's chances for the Davis cup.

'T'HE Challenge Round between Australia and England was closer 
* than was anticipated as both Australia and America were supposed 
to be far better than England. 

Brookes beat Gore in the first match rather easily. This was the 
natural outcome as they have met with the same result several times 
before, Gore's back court game not being good enough to overcome the 
brilliant net play of Brookes. 

Wilding, in his match with Barrett, began poorly losing the first set, 
6-1, but after he got well set he was never headed, and by better all- 
round generalship won by 3 sets to 1. This gave Australia a command- 
ing lead, but like America, England won the Doubles after a most excit- 
ing 5-set match. The playing of Barrett at the net and Gore's accuracy 
from the back court made a good combination. The Australians were 
weak overhead and their team work was poor. The latter is also a 
great handicap in a close Doubles match as there is a hesitancy to play 
many shots by both players. 

On the third day Gore unexpectedly won from Wilding, 3-6, 6-3, 7-5, 
6-2; and Brookes continued his brilliant playing winning from Barrett 
very handily, 6-2, 6-0, 6-3. 

England was satisfied with the result as they expected to be badly 
beaten considering their best players (the Dohertys and Smith) were 
not representing them. In playing Gore, Wilding made a great mistake 
trying to play him from the back line from which position Gore excels. 
He changed his methods later, but it was too late. 

The Scores: 

N. E. Brookes (Australia) beat A. W. Gore (British Isles), 7-5, 
6-1, 7-5. 

A. F. Wilding (Australia) beat H. Roper Barrett (British Isles),

'TPHE twenty-first annual tournament for the Championship of the 
* United States, in Women's Singles, Doubles and Mixed Doubles, 
was held, as usual, on the courts of the Philadelphia Cricket Club at 
St. Martin's, during the last week in June. There was a record-break- 
ing entry list, with forty contestants in the Women's Singles, fifteen pairs 
in the Women's Doubles, twenty pairs in the Mixed Doubles, and thirty 
in the Invitation Men's Singles. 

The weather interfered somewhat with the playing of the matches on 
schedule time, as it rained on the afternoons of the £6th and the 29th, 
but otherwise the matches were run off smoothly and the excellent 
Championship courts of the club were in their usual fine condition, 
and only seemed to improve as a result of the showers. It was particu- 
larly unfortunate that it rained on Saturday afternoon, for this was the 
time set for the Finals in the various events, which always bring out 
a very large gallery. 

In the first two rounds the only match of importance was that in which 
Miss Marie Weimer, of Washington, defeated Miss Claire Kulp, of Tren- 
ton, by the unexpectedly easy score of 6-3, 6-1. In the other matches 
the results were m accordance with expectations, and the experts had 
easy victories. 

Li the Third Round, however, several important matches were played, 
and at least one upset was recorded. This was the match in which 
Miss Carrie B. Neely, of Cincinnati, defeated Mrs. Barger-Wallach, of 
Newport. In the first set Miss Neely had things all her own way, as 
Mrs. Barger-Wallach did not seem to be able to get started. But in 
the second set the Newport Champion played with all her accustomed 
skill and resourcefulness, and carried it off after eighteen hard-fought 
games. The strain was too much for Mrs. Wallach, nowever, and Miss 
Neely, playing her usual consistent and careful game, won the set and 
the match, 6-2, 8-10, 6-4. The other important matches of this round 
were those in which Miss Evelyn Sears, of Boston, and Miss Phyllis 
Green and Miss Rachel Harlan, both of Philadelphia, defeated, respec- 
tively, Miss Marie Wagner, of New York, Miss Marie Weimer, of Wash- 
ington, and Miss Edna Wildey, of Plainfield, N. J. 

In the Fourth Round the leading match was that in which Miss Neely 
defeated Miss Harlan by the score of 2-6, 6-4, 6-3. Miss Harlan's

game is hard to beat, as she always plays safe and depends for victory 
upon her opponent's error. Her tactics seemed to bother Miss Neely 
at the start, and the Philadelphia Champion won the first set without 
difficulty. In the second and third sets, however, Miss Neely cleverly 
changed her sytle of play, and resorting to the same methods that Miss 
Harlan was using, she finally won out. The style of game to which 
both players resorted made the match very long drawn out, and was 
productive of anything but good tennis. Both players were exhausted 
before the match was over. 

In the Semi-Finals, Miss Sears had an easy victory over Mrs. G. L. 
Chapman, of New York, but Miss Neely had great difficulty in dispos- 
ing of Mrs. W. H. Pouch, of Englewood, N. J. Mrs. Pouch has shown 
a splendid return to her old-time form, and played a strong all-around 
game during the tournament. She had Miss Neely constantly in diffi- 
culty, and it was only by the latter 's superior endurance that she finally 
won out, 8-6, 7-5. 

The Finals brought out a struggle between the East and the West, 
in the persons of Mjss Sears and Miss Neely. The result was never in 
doubt after the first three games. These were rapidly won by Miss 
Neely, the Boston Champion seeming nervous and afraid to take any 
chances. At this point, however, Miss Sears settled down to her game, 
and thereafter she had Miss Neely completely at her mercy. The West- 
ern expert is an earnest, tireless player, with an evenly developed game, 
and is especially clever at the net, running in with judgment, and smash- 
ing with strength and accuracy. She has, moreover, the great advan- 
tage of long experience as a tournament player. Miss Sears, on the other 
band, plays a game that is much more limited and open to criticism. 
Her game is very much like that of Mrs. Barger-Wallach, though Miss 
Sears is unquestionably the stronger player of the two. Her success 
as a tournament player rests upon two points, first, remarkable getting 
ability* and second, a strong hard forehand drive, which she brings 
off frequently from difficult positions, and always with splendid length 
and accuracy. It was by this stroke that she won the Championship 
title, for as soon as she learned that by it she could keep Miss Neely 
from the net, the final match was practically won. The Champion 
does not come into the net herself at all, and her backhand stroke is 
surprisingly weak. Miss Neely 's clever generalship led her to take 
every advantage of these weaknesses, but as soon as the Western player 
found herself falling behind, she made the mistake of running in too 
frequently, in the hope of a chance to kill, and Miss Sears having herself 

100 Women's National Championship 

bv that time well in hand, passed her opponent easily, from all parts 
of the court. 

The former Champion, Mrs. Marshall McLean (Miss Helen H. 
Romans) did not defend her title, which, therefore, went to Miss Sears, 
by default 

In the Women's Doubles, the noteworthy event was the splendid 
showing of the Misses Edna and Natalie Wildey, of Plainfield, N. J., 
who made their initial bow in important tournament play. They came 
through to the Final Bound, where they met Miss Neely, of Chicago, 
*and Miss Weimer, of Washington, who have together, and individually, 
been the winners of many a hard-fought match. In the first set the 
Misses Wildey showed signs of nervousness, and lost, 6-1, but in the 
second, bv clever team work and the most brilliant net play that has been 
seen on the St. Martin's courts in a women's match, they overwhelmed 
their opponents, and won out by the score of six games to two. In the 
Final set the skill and experience of the Westen and Southern combina- 
tion told, and the match went to Miss Neely and Miss Weimer, 6-1, 2-6, 6-4. 

The entries in the Mixed Doubles were not quite up to the usual 
standard in this event, and the title went to Miss May Sayres and Wallace 
F. Johnson, of Philadelphia, without any very serious opposition. Here, 
again, however, Miss Natalie Wildey distinguished herself, going through, 
with her partner, to the Final Bound. The fine showing of the Misses 
Wildey, who had been hitherto unknown in tournament play, should 
be a great encouragement to the younger players to enter in this event. 

The extra event in Men's Singles brought out a large number of well- 
known tournament players, and resulted in many close and hard-fought 
matches. The most interesting was that in which J. R. Carpenter, Jr., 
who had just won the Pennsylvania State Championship, met N. W. 
Niles, who had just lost the Challenge match for the Massachusetts 
State Championship. Nile's peculiar service bothered Carpenter for 
some time, and the first set was carried on for eighteen games. When 
Carpenter, however, had solved its puzzling bound, he ran through Niles 
without much difficulty, and won the second set by six games to three. 

Aside from the two days of rain, which necessitated carrying the 
tournament over until the following week, the National Championships 
were a great success. The increasing interest in tennis was dearly 
shown by the large number of entries and by the large and interested 
gallery which came out each day to watch the matches.

A S usual the annual Longwood tournament which is played on the 
** club's beautiful turf courts numbering over fifteen, brought forth 
the highest ranked players from all sections of the country. The weather 
was ideal for gooa play and encouraged by a large and enthusiastic 
tennis gathering of both sexes, the week was a great success. 

The unforeseen happened which is necessary to add a bit of excite- 
ment to any event. It was that W. J. Clothier, Champion of the year 
was beaten by F. C. Colston in a close well-played 5-set match. Other- 
wise there were no serious upsets, except that Hobart defaulted to Lamed 
in the Challenge Round, thus giving Lamed the third leg on the bowl 
and permanent possession of same. This action naturally grieved 
the Longwood committee to see their beautiful bowl carried away un- 
fought for, but it seems Hobart does not approve of the holder standing 
out, consequently he remained satisfied with the title of winning the 

The best match of the Third Round was that between LeRoy and Sullo- 
way. These players had met often, principally defending their college 
honors, Columbia and Harvard, ana had always split about even. 
They are both good off the ground with LeRoy superior at the net, 
and this is what won him the match by 3 sets to 1. 

In the Fourth Round Colston won his first big match by beating Clothier 
3 sets to 2. Colston deserved to win as he played an aggressive, dash- 
ing, but at the same time accurate game from the start. Clothier's 
weakest point was his service which Colston made many aces on. 

Wylie C. Grant also showed good form and won from C. B. Neel 
3 sets to 1. Neel, a few years ago, was one of the leading players being 
unusually aggressive and persistent. 

In the Fifth Round with 2 sets to 1 against him, R. D. Little won from 
Colston who was playing as well as in the previous round. Little's 
experience and aggressiveness won him the match. After losing the 
first set by being very erratic, Hobart beat Seaver in a long drawn out 
base line match, and had no trouble winning from Hallowell in the 
Semi-Finals, although LeRoy unexpectedly defeated Little 3 sets to 1. 
It is only fair to say that Little had had a trying week, and as the weather 
was hot each day, it effected his game more or less. In the Final Round

a close contest was looked for, but much to the disappointment of a 
large gathering LeRoy was in poor form, being a bit over-anxious and 
lost 8-6, 6 2, 6-1, 6-2. Lamed won the Challenge Round and third 
legon the bowl by Hobart s default.

THE New England Championship, which took place on the day 
courts of the Hartford Golf Chib at Hartford, Conn., June 15, is 
one of the oldest tournaments cow held, dating back to 1886, the firtt 
tournament taking place at New Haven on that date and continuing 
up to 1900, when it was transferred to its present location. 

The tournament of the present year was most interesting from start 
to finish. The final matcnes, played on Saturday before a large and 
interesting audience, were well contested, particularly the Singles be- 
tween Fell and Westfall, the former winning after a well and hard 
played five-set match.

PLAYED for the second time in Atlanta on the beautiful dirt courts 
*^ of the Atlanta Athletic Club, the tournament drew from the States of 
Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Ohio, Indiana, Louisiana, South Caro- 
lina and Georgia, players who have been coming year after year to this 
meet to compete for the Southern Championship. From the far Wefet 
came Hence Orme of Indianapolis, Dr. Little and Hugh Bates were 
present from Cincinnati and the doctor came very near capturing the $300 
silver mug, which was won by Nat Thornton, who won first prize at the 
Gulf States Meet at New Orleans, and who also won the South Atlantic 
States meet at Augusta, Ga. 

This young man was only defeated at one Southern tournament this 
season, and if he keeps up his game this year, the writer would not, be at 
all surprised to see him ranked in the first ten when Col. Al Hoskins and 
his assistants get together and rank the players for the 1908 season. 

Day of Nashville showed up well, and so did Cowan Rodgers. The 
former was beaten by Thornton after he lead by one set and five love. 
In the second round Cowan Rodgers lost to Dr. Little, after having de- 
feated him the week before at the Tennessee State Championship, and 
Little was nut out by Thornton in the Semi-finals, after one of the 
closest matches ever pulled off in this section. 

Little and Bates, Rodgers brothers, Norton and Cornelius and Grant 
and Thornton were the favorites in the Doubles. Rodger brothers de- 
feated Bates and Little and met Grant and Thornton in the Challenge 
Round, losing in straight sets. 

Miss May Logan of New Orleans again won the Ladies' Singles, 
defeating her club mate. Miss Minor in the Challenge Round. Miss 
Logan and her brother, Blan Logan, captured the Mixed Doubles; and 
the Gentlemen s Consolation Singles went to C. Y. Smith, who defeated 
L. I). Scott in the Final Round. 

This tournament for 1908 will draw more entries than ever before, 
and tne 4 AthIetic,Club will be in a better shape to entertain the visitors, 
haying just completed a $50,000 club house at their country grounds, six- 
miles from Atlanta. °

The Tennessee State Championship was played on the courts of 
the Nashville Tennis Club, June 24 and following days. Cowan 
Rodgers of Nashville regained the Championship, playing winning 
tennis all through the tournament. When he reached the Finals he 
met a worthy opponent in J. F. Day, who played him a hard five-set 
match. As Reuben Hunt, winner of last year's tournament, was not 
present to defend his title it went to Rodgers. 

The Doubles was rather a surprise as it was figured that last year's 
champions, the Rodgers brothers, would continue to hold the title, but 
the good playing of Day and Farrell proved too much for them and 
won the match by the scores of 1-6, 6-3, 8-6, 6-4.

The Georgia State Championship, which took place on the courts 
of the Log Cabin Club, Macon, the week of July 8, proved a most 
interesting event. 

Eden Taylor, Jr., of Macon, proved the best of those who took part 
in the early rounds of the Singles. He and Bates were looked upon as 
the best men in the tournament, and sure to meet in the Finals. 

This prediction proved true, for both men did meet and Taylor was 
the victor in three straight sets, when he met Dr. Little of Cincinnati 
in the Challenge Bound and was defeated in a four-set match, 6-4, 4-6, 
6-4, 6-3.

The seventh annual tournament for the Gulf States Championships, 
held May 27, 28, 29, 30 and 31, on the turf courts of the New Orleans 
Lawn Tennis Club, proved to be an unusually large gathering of local 
talent with the foreign visitors conspicuous by their absence. The 
home club furnished, as usual, the largest number of entries, but the 
' other local organizations were well represented both in quantity and 
quality and made a better record of victories than in former years. 

Esmond Phelps, the N. O. L. T. C. Champion, justified tne predic- 
tions of his admirers and captured first honors in the open^ingles with 
but the loss of a single set. M. N. Smith, his clubmate, was the man to 

Southern Championships 119 

spoil the clean score when he put up a game fight in the finals, the play 
being even closer that the score would indicate. Phelps, however, 
was just a little stronger in every department of the game and clearly 
deserved first honors. 

Rain fell on the night before the Championship Round and the event 
was contested on a soggy court that made fast and accurate play well 
nigh impossible. Thornton of the Atlanta Athletic Club, tre holder 
of tie title, was in fine form and the conditions considered, played 
splendid tennis. Phelps, on the other band, seemed off his game, fail- 
ing to kill his short loos and appearing unable to keep the ball away 
from the middle of the net. Tcornton took the net on every occasion 
and when once there seemed unbeatable. His victory in straight sets 
was foreshadowed early in the contest. 

The Doubles tournament furnished no surprises until the challenge 
match was reached. Logan and Phelps were easily the best, winning 
first honors without the loss of a set. When Grant and Thornton of 
Atlanta, Champions of 1905 and 1906, appeared to defend their title 
it was pretty well conceded that the cups would this year become their 
permanent property. Even after two sets had gone against them and 
it was evident tbatt he Champions were in poor form, the talent still 
looked for a grand rally that would turn the tide of battle. In the third 
set, which they won, they gave glimpses of their old form and might 
have improved still further had not rain forced a cessation of hostilities. 
The resumption of play on the following morning found them in the 
ragged form of the opening set and after scoring one game they lost 
the next six and with them the match and the Championship. Logan 
and Phelps performed consistently throughout the contest, Tfey were 
steady and patient to a remarkable degree. ( Both lobbed accurately, 
Logan, perhaps, excelling in this feature, while Phelps' overhead play 
was particularly effective. ,

Labor Day, September 2, 1907. 

The entry list, seventy- one in the Association Cup Singles was larger 
than in the previous years, and included all of the crack players in the 
metropolitan district. On account of the National tournament at New- 
port overlapping owing to bad weather several of the cracks playing at 
Newport were compelled to default or this year's tournament as to entires 
and class of playing would have broken all records. 

Despite such drawbacks including rain upon the forenoon of Labor 
Day, the interest in the various events reflected great credit upon the 
association both as to the manner of running off matches, bringing 
the tournament to a close upon the final day and in many minor ways 
handling the five events together, there being such a long entry list as 
the following scores will show. 

The East Jersey Association has made its reputation, however, from 
the consistent manner in which its tournaments have always been held. 
The players following the circuit and the press also referred frequently 
to the efficient way in which umpires, and linesmen have been provided 
for each of the lines in all the principal matches, including the women 's 
events; hence the players feel assured that the disagreeable features 
of tournament play, where these officials are not provided, will not come 
up to bother them. 

Pursuant to the announcement made the previous year, the Challenge 
Round this year was abandoned and the winner of the tournament 
obtained a leg upon the cup and hereafter does not stand out but must 
again play through in order to obtain another leg. This is in accordance 
with tne views of a considerable number of players and now furnishes 
discussion as to whether the new or the old way produces the fairest 

Tne ladies' events proved a greater attraction and this year the com- 
mittee added the Women's Singles in which there were nineteen entries. 
The hospitality of the home club members displayed during tennis week

is such that players who follow the circuit can well afford to bear this 
tournament in mind and look forward to the pleasure of playing at 

Edward P. Lamed, younger brother of the National Champion, 
playing consistently through the tournament scored a well-earned 
victory over Carlton C. Kelley in the Finals in a hard-fought five-set 
match, 4-6, 4-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-1; and added his name to those of F. G. 
Anderson and K. H. Behr who also have won legs upon the Challenge 

In the Men 's Doubles there were over thirty teams entered and W. B. 
Cragin, Jr., playing with Miles S. Charlock, won this event with the

'TTHE twenty-sixth annual Went worth tournament began July 30 
■ aud continued throughout the week. 

The weather was of the best for tennis, which lasted the entire week, 
with a good entry list. There were many players from the York Country 
Club, York Harbor and Rye Beach, and visitors from neighboring sum- 
mer resorts. A tennis dance and other entertainments were given for 
the players by guests of the hotel during the week. 

Arthur Sweetzer, the Harvard Interscholastic Champion, had the 
honor of winning the tournament. He played steadily during the en- 
tire week. He had some close matches, especially in the Finals, which 
went to five sets, but he always managed by forcing his opponent at 
critical times to win out. 

The gallery was large and enthusiastic each day. 

The upset of the tournament was in the Doubles, when Irving Wright 
and Cresson were beaten by Sweetzer and Niles in three close sets, 
4-6, 7-5, 8-6. In the Semi-final round of the Singles, Colston beat 
Cresson, 6-4, 9-11, 6-2 in a well-played match. Both players were 
aggressive, and it was not until Cresson stayed away from the net that 
Colston took the lead. 

In the Final round of the Doubles, S. L. Beals and Scott beat Sweetzer 
and Niles, 6-8, 6-3, 6-3, 6-4. The players were all evenly matched, 
but the winner's play was superior and they made but few errors.

THE annual Southampton invitation tournament was held on the 
courts of the Meadow Club, Aug. 12, and following days. The 
tournament lost some of its interest owing to the taking away of several 
of the leading players to take part in the Championship Doubles between 
the East, West and South, which took place on the courts of the Crescent 
Athletic Club, Bay Ridge. Otherwise the tournament was a success 
in every way. Beals Wright won the Singles, and F. C. Colston and

HpHE 1907 season in the Metropolitan district was opened by a revival 
* of the Long Island Championship on the dirt courts of the Kings 
County Tennis Club in Brooklyn. A new $300 ^Challenge Cup was 
donated and this is to be won three times, not necessarily consecutively, 
beforebe coming the property of the winner. The tournament was most 
successful although the weather put a damper on many a hardened enthu- 
siast^ ^Naturally at the beginning of the season surprises were looked 
for and several "came off. * Chief among these were the defeat of 
H. EL Hackett by Jos. T. McMahon and the defeat of H. L. Westfall 
by H. S. Roberts. The tournament was run with clock-like precision 
and considering the number of entries, 63 in Singles and 11 teams of 
Doubles, the fact that both Finals wereplayed on the Saturday follow- 
ing the'opening of the tournament on Tuesday, speaks volumes for the 
committee handling the tournament. The Semi-Finals and Finals 
produced some sterling tennis, close contests, and many gruelling sets. 
Those reaching the Semi-Finals in Singles were between L C. Wright 
and F. G. Anderson and H. Mollenhauer and W. C. Grant. The former 
contest went to vantage sets each set and Wright finally proved the 
victor at 7-5, 10-8. Grant secured a love set from Mollenhauer hut 
was beaten, 6-4, 0-6, 6-3. In the Final Mollenhauer ran the first two 
sets to 8-6 before succumbing and then drew away and won a set at 
6-2, only to be beaten in the fourth set by Wright, at 6-3. It was a 
contest worthy of the two fighters who contended as both players are 
known for their bull-dog tenacity and that never-say-die spirit so essen- 
tial to success in any sport. Wright thus gained the first leg on the new

'T , he Western tennis season of 1907 was an unusually successful one, 
* and in the Chicago district, especially the game was put on a firmer 
bases than ever before., and the increased interest on thepart of the public 
in the game was never before so much in evidence. Tbere were disap- 
pointments, it is true, chief of which was tr e passing from the tennis 
world of Kreigh Collins and the temporary retirement of Heath Byford — 
the star and sensation of 1906. But these losses were, in a measure, 
forgotten in the joy that was felt over the return to the game of the 
veteran, Carr Neel. Neel made bis first appearance on Chicago courts 
in eight years in* th.e Illinois Championship at the Aztec Club, and by 
the most brilliant k*nd of work, ran through the tournament and then 
took the Championship away from L. Harry Waidner in the Challenge 
Round. His work in the big Western Championship that followed was 
also of the highest class, and his great win over Wallace Johnson of 
Philadelphia in this event proved that he had not gone back much. 

The season of 1907 opened* up early m the spring with a warm fight 
in the Western Association for the honor of holding the big Western 
tennis classic. Hitherto the Kenwood Country Club had held a sort of 
monopoly on the holding of this event, and the Western Association had 
become badly disorganized. But lastyear a change came, and .when 
the influential Onwentsia Club of Lake Forest applied for the tournament, 
a warm fight was immediately precipitated. Lines were tightly drawn 
and a great battle followed — a fight that ended finally with the awarding 
of the event to Onwentsia. These tournament controversies tend surely 
and unmistakably for the good of the game as is evidenced by the fact 
that enthusiasm is running higher than ever before in and around 

The tournaments of last year led off, as usual, with the Illinois State 
tournament at the Aztec Club. And this event held its own nobly — 
bringing out as it did — some of the best playing of the entire year. In 
the men 's events Carr Neel was the one tig star and his re-appearance 
brought out scores of the old tennis lovers to watch the games. In the 
women's events another surprise was in store for the spectators, when 
Mrs. Robert Williams of the Aztec Club signalized her entrance into 


13d Lawn Tennis in and About Chicago 

the Championship class by running through to the finals in easy style* 
where she all but heat Miss Carrie B. Neely. 

Following the Illinois event came the annual open tournament of the 
Wanderers Cricket and Athletic Club, one of the pfeasantest, as well 
as best events on the Western schedule. The tournament brought out 
much good play and was finally won by Heath Byfcrd, who defeated 
Charlie Peters m the Challenge Round, by default. 

And then came the Western. The event was held on the beautiful 
courts of the Onwentsia Club, twenty-eight miles north of Chicago's 
limits, and although a little inaccessible to Chicago lovers of the game, 
it drew a great gallery, nevertheless. The tournament was a huge 
success in every way, although some disappointment was felt in the easy 
way in which Hackett and Alexander, the Easterners, made off with the 
Doubles. In the women's events the sensation was once again found 
in the playing of Mrs. Williams, the youthful Aztec player, who surprised 
even her most ardent admirers by the great game she exhibited — a game 
that earned for her the title of "the May Sutton of the West." She 
failed, however, in the Final Round, where she was out-witted more than 
out-played by the veteran woman champion, Miss Carrie B. Neely, 
who, after years of striving, finally took away the premier honors. 

This tournament closed the open tournaments in the Chicago dis- 
trict and the leading players treaded to other fields. 

In the Chicago Tennis League a most successful year was had, the 
Kenwood Country Club team ultimately winning out after an exciting 
race and thereby annexing, for good and all, the big Chicago Tennis 
League trophy — its teams having captured it twice before. 

But the most encouraging feature perbaps, of the tennis year, was the 
number of clubs that "got into" the game — all of the leading clubs 
finding it necessary to increase the number of their tennis courts — so 
great was the interest shown. This feature coupled with the successful 
establishment of a Women's Tennis League, marked more than any- 
thing else the tennis season of 1907.

The annual open tournament of the Wanderers' Cricket and Athletic 
Club, of Chicago, — sandwiched in as it is between the Illinois and 
Western events — proved of exceptional interest last year, and the entry 
list was almost up to the standard of the two larger events. In the 
Singles the tournament drew its usual record-breaking entry and seventy- 
two players entered for the contest, while in the Doubles sixteen teams 
started in the first Round. 

For the event the Wanderers' officials set aside the beautiful turf of 
the cricket crease, and by means of constant rolling and good care the 
club boasted the finest tournament courts in the West bv the timejolav 
started. There has always been an element in the Wanderers' Club 
that discouraged the holding of a tennis tournament — the diversity of 
interests having always threatened to weaken the enthusiasm for tennis. 
But this year 3ie event was such a great success in every way and the 
club was so unquestionably benefited by the holding of it that it is thought 
all the opposing faction will hereafter recognize the importance attached 
to the club's big annual event. 

The interest in the Men 's Doubles was greatly enhanced by the appear- 
ance of the veterans Carr, Neel, and W. Scott Bond in the tournament, 
and while they failed to win, their work was very praiseworthy and showed 
that all they lacked was hard tournament experience. In the Singles 
no matches of interest were played in the First Bound, but in the second 
the meeting of T. P. Goodboay and Lawrence Burford and of Charles 
S. Peters and William Wilkins brought out the fastest kind of play, and 
both matches went the full three sets before a winner was returned. 
T'he final match in Doubles between Hayes and Peters and Byford and 
Gardner all four men were in great form, but the former team's superior 
team play and greater steadiness was telling and, although all of the sets 
were wefi-playea and hard fought, Hayes and Peters managed to win 
out in four sets, the final score being 6-8, 7-5, 6-4, 6-2.

The season in the Chicago Tennis League was an unusually successful 
one and more interest was shown in the matches than ever before. Be- 
ginning its season early in June and having a late finish in September, 
the interest never once diminished and large galleries were always present 
at the matches. 

A new club— the Evanston Country Club — entered the league last 
year, and while their showing was poor they are expecting to put a great 
team in the field this coming year. The fight soon narrowed down to a 
three-cornered one between the Kenwood, Aztec and Wanderers' Clubs 
— the first named finally winning out This victory by Kenwood gives 
it permanent possession of the big Chicago Tennis League trophy, it 
having won it twice previously.

The^first tournament of importance in the Western states — the an- 
nual Western Intercollegiate— -was held [on the clay courts of the 
University of Chicago on May 27 and following days, while the tourna- 
ment was a disappointment in many ways — notably the small number 
of entries — it was a great success in many others and drew more atten- 
tion than any western event in recent years. Five of the great western 
universities were represented in the tournament and a sixth — North- 
western — was entered but forced to withdraw before the commencement 
of play. The chief absentee was the University of Michigan, always a 
prominent factor in previous years — an absence made necessary by the 
oan placed upon it by the Western Conference colleges. 

The victories of Chicago in both the Singles and the Doubles gives that 
institution five points towards the necessary seven to gain permanent 
possession of the trophy — three points having been scored by her in 
previous years. The only other college holding a "leg** on the trophy 
is Cornell College Qpwa) which won one point in 1906 by virtue of the 
victory of Walter T. Hayes of that school.

The annual tournament for Western Interscholastic Championship 
was played on the clay courts of the University of Chicago on June 7 
and following days. The tournament was the largest event of its kind 
ever held in the West and drew a record-breaking list of entrants, al- 
though the quality of play can hardly be said to nave been up to the 
standard of former events. Modisette and Coleman, two boys from the 
East High School of Cleveland, made the trip from that city especially 
to compete in the event, thereby making a new record for long distance 
entries and at the same time broadening the scope of the tournament. 

The championship in Singles was won by Adams of the Evanston 
Township High School, who defeated Modisette of East High School, 
Cleveland, in the Final Round, 1-6, 6-2, 6-3, 6-4. 

In the Doubles Moore and Adams of Evanston were victorious, de- 
feating Toy and Kinfield of Morgan Park Academy in the Final Round, 
6-3, 6-2, 4-6, 3-6, 6-1. 

This tournament is held under the auspices of the University of Chicago, 
it having been renewed in 1905 after an abandonment of several years.

Many of the best players in the West were not ranked last year owing 
to the small number of tournaments in which tbey participated. These 
include Kreigh Collins, Heath Byford, Reuben G. Hunt, William 
Scudder, Norris Mundy, Ford Carter and others. No Easterners were 
rated, although several participated in the Western tournaments. 


*T*HE twentieth annual tournament for the Championship of the West 
* was played on the turf courts of the Onwentsia Club of Lake Forest,

greatest tournaments ever held in the West. 

Nearly every section of the country was represented and the East 
once more was entered in the lists. Harold H. Hackett, Fred B. Alex- 
ander and Wallace F. Johnson were the eastern representatives, while 
the northwest was out with its best talent in the persons of Ward C. 
Burton and Louis Northrop. 

Ideal tennis weather prevailed throughout the week, and the tourna- 
ment was run off on schedule time — a remarkable feat for a club having 
but eight courts. The Onwentsia Club itself is by far the finest country 
club in the West, and the advantages it offered far excelled anything 
ever connected with a western tournament before. The hospitality of 
its members, together with their royal entertaining, conspired to make 
the week an unusually pleasant one for tennis lovers, and the galleries 
were exceptionally large at each day's play. The courts were in ex- 
cellent condition, the turf being closely cut and rolled each day. 

The match between Waidner and Alexander the crowd was treated 
to fiasco that brought a whole lot of unpleasant criticism on Alexander, 
who, after winning two straight sets in remarkably easy fashion, sud- 
denly announced his determination to default, and the earnest pleadings 
of Waidner and the committee in charge failed utterly to change this 
decision, and the afternoon's programe was consequently sadly inter- 
fered with. 

In the Men 's Doubles, to which the greatest importance was attached, 
owing to its relation to the National event at Newport, four teams stood 
out prominently as contenders for first honors, ana all of the four teams 
were successful in winning their way into the Semi-finals. In the upper 
half the "luck o* the draw" brought Alexander and Hackett against 
Waidner and Neel in the Semi-final Round, while in the lower Emerson 
and John C. Neely were pitted against Hayes and Peters. 

The match between Hackett and Alexander and Waidner and Neel 
was a keen disappointment to Western enthusiasts, as neither Waidner 


The Western Championships 145 

or Neel showed the form that bad been expected of them. Alexander 
and Hackett, on the contrary, played an almost unbeatable game, and 
it is hard to figure how any of the great teams in their palmiest days could 
have defeated this Eastern team on that particular day. No shot seemed 
too difficult for them and their perfect, flawless team-work brought 
out round after round of applause. Alexander especially was right on 
edge and his various serves and his general ability to drive from any 
angle and from any position puzzled the Chicago team often. The team 
work of Waidner and Neel was almost correspondingly poor, and they 
showed lack of practice together noticeably. In each of the three sets 
the Westerners managed to annex two games, but that was the best tl ey 
could do, and they lost out in easy style, 6-2, 6-2, 6-2. 

In the other Semi-final Emerson and Neely sustained great difficulty 
in defeating Hayes and Peters — the match going four long sets before 
the former team scored a win. 

Hie result of these matches placed Emerson and Neely against Hackett 
and Alexander in the Final Round, and another easy victory for the New 
Yorkers followed, Emerson and Neely both played well — and even 
brilliantly in places — but the grand Eastern team work was too much 
for them and they succumbed, after four sets, 6-0, 4-6, 6-1, 6-1. The 
easy victories of Hackett and Alexander were keenly regretted, and once 
more the Western title goes East. 


In the women 's events a strong entry list was secured and the quality 
of play as a whole was the best shown by women players in the West 
for years. The fight in the women's Singles soon narrowed down, as 
had been expected, to a four-cornered contest between Miss Carrie B. 
Neely and Miss Marie Wimer in the upper half and Miss Miriam Steever 
and Mrs. Robert Williams in the lower. 

The Finals between Miss Neely and Mrs. Williams again showed 
some great tennis, and for a time it looked as though the young Aztec 
player would hold her rival even. But once more the greater experience 
of Miss Neely told and she won out in straight sets, 7-51 6-4, chiefly 
through her determined and successful efforts to play Mrs. Williams' 
backhand constantly. The defeat of Mrs. Williams by Miss Neely, 
and the default of the title by Mrs. R. B. Neff gives Miss Neely her 
first Western Championship, although she has come very near to win- 
nine: it on numerous other occasions. < *i ! 

The Women's Doubles were taken by Misses Steeverjand Neely, who

defeated Mrs. Williams and Miss Wimer in the Final Bound. The 
Mixed Double title went to Miss Steever and Dr. A. O. Lee.

THE Englewood Field Club open tournament, which took place at 
Englewood, N. J., during the week of July 15, proved to be one of 
the most interesting tournaments held in or about New York City durii g 
the tennis season of 1907. There was a good entry list of players wto 
were high ranked as shown by the well-contested matches throughout 
the tournament. 

Fred G. Anderson won the tournament by defeating his club mate 
Henry Mollenhauer, after a well-played four-set match. The Doubles 
were won by Irving Wright and Henry Torrance, defeating Dewhurst 
and Bates in three straight sets. The Ladies' Singles was won by Mrs. 
Pouch, defeating Miss Kotch, and the Mixed Doubles by Miss Wagner 
and Mr. Mollenhauer.

LAWN tennis is already beginning to get a good foothold in the 
Philippine Islands as last year a very successful tournament was 
held at Manila. It was won by Major Bethel (whose picture is marked 
with a cross) who began playing some years ago in the east. The 
Manila Athletic Association is very flourishing and the officers take a 
keen interest in their club. 



THE Vedado Tennis Club of Habana was founded in June, 1902, 
with about 80 members and two macadamized courts sanded and 
clayed. It has now about 110 members and three courts of the same 
kind. The difference between members and number of courts is ex- 
plained by the fact that the dub has a baseball and a football team and 
goes in also for track and field athletics. 

The first tournament was held on Christmas, 1902, and the Finals 
were decided in January, 1903. Since then the club has held two tourna- 
ments every year, one on Christmas and one in June. The June tourna- 
ment is generally a handicap one, and on Christmas the Championship 
of Cuba is played for. The entries are for Men's Singles, Ladies' 
Singles, Men's Doubles, Ladies' Doubles and Mixed Doubles. The 
number of the entries in the Singles has varied from 9 to 25; in the 
Doubles from 6 to 14. For these series the dub offers fine cups. The 
tournaments have been held according to the rules of the National 
Lawn Tennis Association of the United States. This year we have 
taken steps to ascertain whether we could not be admitted to that asso- 
ciation, but nothing has yet been decided on this matter. 

The following is a list of the Champions of Cuba: 


1903, Mr. Ygnado Zayas; 1904, Mr. Miquel Morales; 1905, Mr. 
Ygnacio Zayas; 1906. Mr. Francis £. Howland; 1907, Mr. Ygnado 

Men's Doubles. 

1903, Mr. Y. Zayas and Mr. A. Goudie; 1904, Mr. A. Luarez and Mr. 
M. Morales; 1905, Mr. Y. Zayas and Mr. A. Goudie; 1906, Mr. Y. 
Zayas and Mr. A. Goudie; 1907, Mr. Y. Zayas and Mr. A Goudie. 



lkM ORE than to any other reason, tennis may trace its right to its 
■* ^ * undisputed title of " the most universally played game in the world " 
to;the*reluctancy of ourJEnglish cousins to give up their play when they 
go abroad to work, and South America, in common with all the out- 
posts of British political or commercial empire, furnishes many cases 
in point. Buenos Ayres, very aptly called the "Paris of the southern 
hemisphere, ' * is, perhaps, the most active tennis center, a circumstance 
due directly to the fact that 40,000 out of its 1,200,000 of inhabitants, 
are English born. Some tennis is played among the French and Ger- 
mans, both of whom outnumber the English, and several promising 
players have appeared who are native Argentines; but tile highest class 
of play is always to be seen upon the courts of the Buenos Ayres Tennis 
' Uub, the Hurlingham Country Club, and on those of the clubs of the 

Sicturesque suburbs of Belgrano, Quilmes, Flores and Lanus, all Eng- 
sh organizations. The American population of the city; being largely 
of a "floating'' nature, lacks social cones iveness, and is therefore not 
directly represented in the tennis world. 

The Argentine championships are played off annually in May, on 
the unusually fast and attractive courts of the Buenos Ayres Club. The 
entry lists, both in the Men's and Women's events, are invariably large, 
and the standard of play fairly hi^h. Stanley Knight of Rozairo, who 
has held the Singles Championship for a number of years, stands in a 
class by himself among the local men, and it is generally believed he will 
take rank somewhere m the first ten English players, as it is his inten- 
tion to play in the "home" tournaments the coming summer. Messrs. 
Shaw and Kidd of Belgrano, and Anderson and Doming of Hurlingham, 
well known as cricketers, are also players of considerable ability. 

In addition to the Championship event, regular monthly tournaments, 
both scratch and handicap, are held by the various clubs, while a con- 
stant series of inter-club matches is kept up throughout the year. 

Tennis in Brazil is rather backward on account of the climate, and 
the best play is to be seen in Rio, Santos and Santa Paulo. In Rio the 
best players are men connected with the foreign legations and consulates, 
though for several years the Champion of the capital was a young Bra- 
zilian who had learned the game in Paris. 


162 Lawn Tennis in South America ' 

The Chileans, physically are the finest race in South America, and 
in their love of out-of-door sports vielfairly with the English. Santiago 
has several tennis clubs composed entirelv of native^members, and similar 
organizations are in existence in Concepcion, Talca and Chilian. The 
home of tennis in Chile, however, is to be found at the attractive country 
club of Vina del Mar, the beautiful surbub of Valparaiso. Here the 
Championship events are played, and in this vicinity are to be found the 
best players in the country, several of the most prominent of these latter 
^eing Germans. 

The club at Iquique, the great nitrate port of northern Chile, furnishes 
perhaps the best example of tennis enthusiasm to be found in the world. 
This remarkable city is situated in an absolutely railless belt, well within 
the tropics, as a consequence of which water is so scarce as to give rise 
to the saying that ''people drink champagne in Iquique because water 
is too expensive. " In spite of this fact, enough of the one, or the other, 
is obtained to keep a te mis court in good condition, and to slack the 
thirst of a very energetic lot of enthusiasts who turn out at four o'clock 
every day for their evening game. 

Uruguayan tennis is more or less intimately associated with that of 
Argentina, and teams trained on several of the very excellent courts 
in Montevideo have regularly proved factors to be reckoned with in the 
Argentine championships. 

In Peru and Bolivia, American civil and mining engineers have had 
a good deal to do with introducing tennis at various scattered and un- 
likely points, and one finds better tennis in some of the remote camps 
than in the capitals or ports. Conditions for the game are ideal in 
Bogota, the Columbian capital, where a moderate altitute minimizes 
tropic lassitude and puts plenty of real snap and go into the play. The 
principal devotees of tennis there are members of the diplomatic corps, 
and one of the most skillful and enthusiastic of these was our late minister, 
the Hon. John Barret. 

Caracas, 3,000 feet of altitude makes tennis possible the year round 
in the picturesque Venezuelan capital and not a little friendly rivalry 
exists in the foreign colony regarding the winning of the not infrequent 
tournaments. Mr. Henry P. Almond, the genial manager of the La 
Guiria-Caracas railroad, is the father of out-door sport in Venezuela, and 
o i his day, a hard man to beat o a the courts. Georgetown, British 
Guiana, has several tennis clubs and a number of really excellent players, 
tiie A best of the latter, probably the governor's private secretary, Mr. 
George Ball-Greene, a relative of the famous Irish player of the same 
name. L. R. P. 

Yokohama Japan Champion 


| T might be of interest to the readers of the Guide to learn that tennis 
* is about the most popular sport in Japan. In Yokohama there is 
a beautiful club situated on the Bluff with seven grass courts as good 
as the best in this country, and four dirt courts. The winters are so 
warm makes the courts ready for play at all times. The Yokohama 
Athletic*and Cricket Club also have a number of fine turf courts. 

The Championship of 1907 was won by T. B. Chapman of Boston 
U. S. A., who defeated J. S. Nicholl also of Boston, in a close 5-set match. 
The Doubles were won by Mollison and Colchester, both Englishmen. 
The competition in club matches is keen and during these competitions 
a arge and enthusiastic gallery go to see the matches. 

On December first the Yokohama Club played the Tokio Tennis 
Chib a team, match defeating them eight games to two. There are a 
few good Japanese players the best being M. Yamasaki of Tokio. No 
doubt in a few years there will be a Japanese challenge for the Davis 
cup as the Japanese are quick to pick up and become expert at a sport. 



*~pHE Old Dominion tournament took place June 24 on the courts 
* of the Hermitage Golf Club, Richmond, Va. The tennis played 
throughout the week was of the best. The surprise of the tournament 
was the defeat of H. G. Whitehead of Norfolk, holder of the State Cham- 
pionship of Virginia by C. Pollard, the local expert in the Semi-finals, 
and following up his good play by winning the tournament in defeating 
Ballenger of Washington m a five-set match. Miss^ Evans, the Vir-

THE annual Northwest Championship took place August 6 and fol- 
lowing days on the grass courts on the border of Lake Minnetoka, 
Minn. This has always been the event of the lawn tennis season in the 
great Northwest. 

There was quite a large crowd around the courts during the matches 
taking a keen interest in the differert events, particularly those between 
Burton and Waidner and Jayre and Emerson being of a local interest, 
but the visitors, Waidner and Emerson, proving the victors, the former

A T Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada, July 2, the first of the inter-city 
** matches, between players representing Detroit, Buffalo, Rochester 
and Toronto clubs, began on the grass courts of the Niagara Golf and 
Tennis Club at this place. As Rochester and Detroit were not repre- 
sented, Buffalo and Toronto faced each other across the nets with the 
following results: 

Howard Bissell, who had wrested the Buffalo City Championship 
from Kirkover on the preceding Saturday, could make no headway 
against Baird, and was disposed of in straight sets. It took Burns 
somewhat longer to win over Kirkover, who played with his usual obsti- 
nate courage against the strong Canadian crack, taking the second set 
in 6-3, and making a determined battle up to the last point scored. In 
the Doubles Baird and Burns of Toronto, after losing the first set to 
Bissell and McLaughlin, rallied strongly, and won the next two sets with 
comparative ease. Carroll and Kirkover scored the only win for Buffalo 
for tee day, defeating Routh ard McMaster in an impressive manner. 
The Scores: 

Men's Singles. 

Baird (Toronto) beat Bissell (Buffalo), 6-2, 6-5; Burns (Toronto) beat 
Kirkover (Buffalo), 6-4, 3-6, 6-4; Glassco (Toronto) beat Wagner 
(Buffalo), by default; Hall (Toronto) beat McLaughlin (Buffalo), 6-2, 
4-6, 8-6; McMaster (Toronto) beat Cutler (Buffalo), 6-2, 6-3; Routh

Busman (Buffalo), 6-3, 6-3. 

Men's Doubles. 

Baird and Burns (Toronto) beat Bissell acd McLaughlin (Buffalo), 
3-6, 6-3, 6-4; Carroll and Kirkover (Buffalo) beat Routh and McMaster 
(Toronto), 6-3, 6-4. 

On the second day the general tournament began. The feature of 
the day's play wasthe match between Burns and Glassco, the Ontario 
champions, and Bissell and McLaughlin of Buffalo. The Canadians 
won, but only after the'hardest kind of a battle, the Buffalonians stub- 
bornly contesting every point 'andf losing after^they had pulled out the 
second set by 6-4.* 

The work of tie jourger players, especially Carroll, Rebadow, and 
Smith of Buffalo, and Dineen, Spanner and Goldstein of Toronto, was 


Toronto vs. Buffalo 171 

remarkably good, and plainly indicates that these youngsters will be 
heard from in coming events. The victory of Burns and Glassco left 
that team to fight it out with Kirkover and Wagner of Buffalo on the 
following day.

July 4 the most exciting play occurred in the Doubles Finals between 
Kirkover and Wagner of Buffalo, and Burns and Glassco of Toronto. 
Once again the Canadians showed their superiority over the men from 
Buffalo, although the latter made a most creditable stand against On- 
tario cracks. 

In the Singles Wagner beat Glassco in straight sets, but suffered defeat 
at the hands of Burns in a four-set match. 

The Scores:

HTHE seventeenth annual tournament for the championship of the 
■ Pacific Northwest was held on the courts of the Tacoma Lawn 
Tennis Club, August 6 and the following days, and proved to be the 
largest tournament ever held in the Pacific Northwest, there being sixty- 
eight entries in the Men's Singles, and thirty-two entries in the Men's 
Doubles, together with one of the largest entry lists in the Mixed and 
Ladies' events in the history of the club's organization. 

Nor was it alone the number of entries which made this meeting the 
best ever held on the Coast, for in addition to quality, all the best men in 
this section were present with the exception of Schwengers of Victoria, 
Russell of Seattle, and Goss of Portland. 

But to make up for the loss of these men we were fortunate in having 
with us a number of California entries, among whom were Reuben 6. 
Hunt, Crawford and Miss Hazel Hotchkiss. This was the first time 
that Miss Hotchkiss has ever played in this territory and her playing 
was a rare treat to all those who saw her play, her overhead work being 
particularly good. 

The matches were started Tuesday on the clay courts which were 
absolutely perfect and with the weather conditions ideal, as luck would 
have it when the tournament was the largest in seventeen years. For the 
first time in seventeen years rain fell tennis week, but in spite of the 
showers on Wednesday and Saturday the tournament committee brought 
every event off on time, and no one was overworked. 

The draw in the Men's Singles brought McBurney, Payne (last year's 
holder) Ballinger and Armstrong together in the upper half, and Tyler 
(runner up last year) Wickersham, Hunt, Crawford and Pooley in the 
lower half. 

In the upper half Armstrong disposed of Ballinger in a close match, 
but was in turn put out by McBurney after a hard struggle, 6-4, 11-9, 
McBurney showing his lack of condition and practice and from the 
game shown by him in this match it was expected that Payne would 
take him into camp easily, but contrary to expectations McBurney won 
easily, Payne having the first off day he has ever shown in tournament 
play on the Coast. This brought McBurney without the loss of a set 
into the Finals against Tyler* who had come through the lower half 


Pacific Northwest Championship 178 

rather easily, defeating Pooley, Hunt and Crawford, who had defeated 
Wickersham, with the loss of but one set. 

The Finals between Tyler and McBurney brought out the best Singles 
by far in the tournament, both players being very aggressive and the 
match proved to be a fight for the net position. Tyler started off with 
a rush and before McBurney warmed up had tucked away the first set 
6-3. This seemed to rouse McBurney and using his deadly backhand he 
forced Tyler to rear of the court and keeping the net himself took the 
next two sets, 8-6, 6-4, and a lead of 4-1 in the fourth set, when the effort 
seemed to tell on him, as he was not in the best condition. Tyler 
seeing his chance at once forced matters taking five games straight and 
the set making two sets all, the last set went to Tyler 6-0, McBurney 
not being able to get his form again. 

In the Men's Doubles four teams came through to the Semi-finals 
that were thought to be evenly matched, but T^ler and Wickersham 
disposed of Hunt and Crawford easily 6-4, 6-2, and Payne and Armstrong 
did the same with McBurney and Ballinger, 6-3, 6-4, putting them in 
the Finals of the Doubles, which proved to be the best match of the 

Tyler and Wickersham directed their attack entirely on Armstrong, 
while Wickersham received the largest burden on his side. Armstrong, 
however, was playing the game of his life, and his opponents were un- 
able to tire him out or to break up the excellent team work of the Tacoma 
pair, and after a desperate struggle in which the winners pulled the last 
set out of the fire when the score stood 5-1 against them, Payne and 
Armstrong brought back the Tacoma cups to their original home. 

The Ladies' Singles was won handily by Miss Hotchkiss, although 
Miss Hall gave her a scare in the Semi-finals, and Miss Ryan, the last 
year's Champion, made her uscall her skill in the Finals, the match being 
much closer than the score shows. 

The Ladies' Doubles was won by Miss Ryan and Miss Hall, who 
defeated Miss Hotchkiss and Miss Robertson in a long struggle, the 
first set going to deuce six times, but the better balanced team finally 
won and took the second set rather easily. 

The Mixed Doubles was won by Miss Ryan and Mr. Tyler who de- 
feated Miss Hotchkiss and Mr. Crawford in the Finals in a very evenly 
contested match, Miss Ryan again proving herself to be Miss Hotchkiss ' 
equal in the Double game.

*T*HE nineteenth open tennis tournament for the Championship of 

* Western Pennsylvania in Singles was held on the grounds of the 

Pittsburg Golf Club, commencing Saturday, July 6, and following days. 

The tournament was a great success in every particular and was 
attended by large and enthusiatsic audiences. It was especially notice- 
able that the younger players were making fast strides forward to take 
the place of some of the older players. The winner of the tournament 
and Championship, Mr. W. L. Myers, came from Chicago some five 
years ago. He came within one point of losing his match in the first 
round to E. Sunstein, as the score was 6-4, 5-4 and 40-30 against him, 
but he won the next point by a beautiful back-band;; pass and finally 
pulled out the set 9-7 and the next one 6-4. 

Mr. G. D. Edwards ,who held the Championship some six years ago, 
was defeated by P. D. Siverd, the Yale Inter-Scholastic Champion, by 
a score of 4-6, 6-4 and 7-5 in the Semi-finals. It looked like a sure win 
for Edwards as they were one set apiece and five games to one in favor 
of Edwards on the third set and he needed but one point twice to give 
him the win; but Siverd played a remarkably steady game and finally 
pulled out the set 7-5, due mainly to his superior staving qualities. 

Mr. C. L. Childs, who two years ago held the Championship, was 
obliged to default in his second match on account of a sprained ankle. 

In the Finals Myers defeated Siverd by using good head work aid 
playing to his young opponent's weak points. 

In tne Championship Rourd Myers defeated Dr. T. W. fctepfcers, 
bolder of the Cup, by a score of 6-2, 6-3 ard 6-4, s* Stephens was unable 
to get his fast passing forehand stroke urder control aid Mjers kept 
his opponent constantly on the run.

THE New York Tennis Club open tournament began May 25, and 
continued throughout the following week. There were several sur- 
prises with many well contested matches. It was a surprise in R T. 
Bryan defeating Irving Wright after the latter going througn and winning 
the Long Island tournament, but Bryan was simply on his game and 
outplayed Wright. Again it was rather a surprise in Doubles that Grant 
ana Westfall were defeated by Pell and LeKoy in the Semi-finals, al- 
though the latter team defeated Wright and Leonard the following day 
when they were in turn defeated in the Challange round by Hackett and 
Allen in a well contested match of four sets. The victory gives Hackett 
and Allen permanent possession of the Felipe Cups.

THE Metropolitan Championship tournament was held at the West 
Side Tennis Club on June 8 ai:d the following days. It had the 
largest entry list of any tournament ever held around New York, and 
over twenty ranking men played in the Singles Championship. 

R. D. Little (W. S. T. C.) won two even matches from Mollenhauer 
and F. G. Anderson. In the first match he lost the first set, 6 to love, as 
he had not yet struck his gait, barely pulled out the second set, but won 
the third with ease. 

In his match with Arderson (K. C. T. C.) he last the first set arid was 
within one point of losing the match. It was his serve, he made one 
fault, and when Anderson stepped up to drive the second serve Little 
suddenly smashed the service down tne center line for a clean ace and 
then pulled out a win. 

In the final match for the Championship, Little, who had won the 
tournament, lost the first two sets, won the third, ard succumbed in the 
fourth to F. B. Alexander, the holder, who made his third successive win, 
thus gaining outright the cup, having on it the names of R. D. Little, 
Holcombe Ward twice, and H. H. Hackett, his present partner in the 
National Double Championship. E. P. Fisher won the former Metro- 
politan Cup. 

In the doubles, Hackett and Alexander had a "walk-over," practically 
winning at will from Grant and Wef-tfall in the finals whom they utterly 

In the Ladies' Singles, Miss Bessie Moore, (W. S. T. C.) won after 
two very severe matches in which the final set was deuce. Mollenhauer 
(K. C. T. C.) and Miss Wagner (Hamilton Grange T. C.) won the 
mixed Double Championship. Ross Burchard (W. S. T. C.) won the 
Handicap Singles. G. M. Bodman (W. S. T. C), Carl Behr's former 
double partner at Yale, won the Consolation Singles. 

Rain on two days lengthened the tournaments out, but as a whole, 
it was one of the most successful tournaments ever given in the vicinity 
of New York on dirt courts.

Intercollegiate Championship. 

THE eighth annual tournament of the New England Intercollegiate 
Tennis Association was held on the courts of the Longwood Cricket 
Club, Boston, Mass. Play which was to have begun on the twenty- 
seventh of May was delayed until the twenty-eighth owing to rain. 
The players representing the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 
were very successful and carried off the honors in both Singles and 
Doubles, bringing their total number of points on the eight-point cup 
up to six, even with Williams. 

Play in the Singles matches was the most interesting, the best matches 
being the Larned-White match in the Semi-final Round and the Bud- 
long-Larned match in the Final Round. Though in the former match 
White did not win a set, the play was very fast throughout and was in 
doubt until the end. Lamed won out in two deuce sets the scores being, 
7-5, 7-5. The Budlong-Larned match brought out the best tennis. 
The Brown man won the first two sets and looked a sure winner, but 
Lamed by a great up-hill struggle finally won out. The sets were all 
very close with the* exception of the last which Larned won easy as Bud- 
long was completely exhausted. The score was 5-7, 2-6, 7-5, 6-4, 6-1. 

The Doubles was a walk-over for Larned and Coffin, who displayed 
good team work and won easily over all their opponents. 

The standing of the colleges on the eight-point cup is as follows: 
Williams, six; Technology, six; Brown, four; Amherst, two and one-half ; 
Dartmouth, two; Bowdoin, one; Tufts, one; Wesleyan, one-half and 
Vermont none.

COUR of the seven colleges sent a representative to Newport to com- 
* pete for the National Interscholastic Championship which took 
place during the week of the National Championship August 21. They 
were Harvard, Princeton, University of Pennsylvania and Columbia. 
Each college should take an interest in this event and see that the winner 
is representing their college at Newport. 

It was expected that either Sweetzer (Harvard) or Johnson (Univ. 
of Penn.) would win as both had had more or less tournament experience. 
Reiraer of Columbia and Mathey of Princeton played good tennis 
but not aggressive enough to win. The Final Match between Johnson 
and Sweetzer was well ^contested. Both plavers had good services 
which they followed to the net. Their style of p>lay, however, was en- 
tirely different. Sweetzer was free and easy getting good length while 
Johnson chopped^ a great deal but was more accurate and steadier. 
A large number of college men watched this match and it was not until 
after four hard sets that Johnson won. 

The Scores: 

Men's Singles. 

First Round: W. F. Johnson (Penn.) beat John Reimer (Columbia), 
0-0, 6-0; Arthur Sweetzer (Harvard) beat Dean Mathey (Princeton), 
(>-4, 4-6, 6-2. 

Final Round: W.T. Johnson (Penn.) beat Arthur Sweetzer (Har- 
vard), 7-5, 6-3, 7-9, 7-5.

ists and also Harold H. Hackett and furthermore the final contest was 
the result of a tie on account of each club having won three matches in

Pacific States Championship. 

THIS event was held at Del Monte, September 1 to 9, instead of San 
Rafael this year and will probably continue to be held there in 
succeeding years. The north carried off the Men y s Singles and Doubles, 
the south taking Mixed Doubles, Ladies' Singles and Doubles. The 
Junior Championship also went north. 

McLoughlin defeated Bell in the Finals, 6-0, 4-6, 5-7, 9-7, 6-2. The 
match was brilliant and hard fought as the score indicates; ex-Champion 
Bell showing better form than he has since he won the title in 1903. 
The Challenge Match was even closer, McLoughlin finally coming out 
winner over M. Long, 18-11, 6-4, 5-7, 4-6, 6-4. The players were as 
evenly matched as it is possible to have them. The sensation occurred 
in the Final set when M. Long all but evened up the score after being 
on the tail end of a 5-0 score. 

Janes and McLoughlin won the Doubles. In the Final Round they 
defeated Sinsabaugh and Hendrick in a fast five-set match. The 
Challenge Match they won easily from the holders Adams and Foley, 
7-5, 6-1, 6-2. 

Little Bob Strachan won the Junior event, waxing his gigantic opponent 
Harold Getz in a five-set match. 

The Mixed Doubles went to Sinsabaugh and Florence Sutton who 
defeated Mrs. Farauhar and Bell in the Finals in a fast three-set match. 

Florence Sutton oy defeating Miss Hotchkiss in the Challenge Round 
became lady Champion for 1907. The score was 6-4, 6-8, but was 
closer than the figures indicate. Miss Sutton and her sister Mrs. Bruce 
won the Ladies' Doubles, defeating Miss Meyer and Mrs. Farquhar 
in the Finals, 6-2, 6-2. 

Maurice McLoughlin by winning both the Single and Doubles title 
stamps'himself as the foremost player of the season.

The California State Championship was played July 4 and following 
days on the courts of the Golden Gate Club this year instead of the 
Hotel San Rafael courts where it was played last year. 

Melville Long, Coast Champion, 1906, carried off first honors in 
this, the eighth annual State Championship defeating his brother Her- 
bert in the Challenge Match, 6-4, 6-1, 6-3. Probably the surprise of 
the event was the defeat of McLoughlin by Geo. Janes. The match 
was close and exciting going to Janes, 7-5, 6-8, 6-4. McLoughlin 
was hardly at his best. 

In the Semi-Finals M. Long disposed of Gardner easily, 6-4, 6-1, 
and Janes snuffed Foley's ambitions, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3. M. Long played 
an almost faultless game in the Finals when he met Janes. The latter 
was given a very good chance to win by the majority, but the best he 

210 Lawn Tennis in California 

could do was to get one game in each of the three sets. In the Challenge 
Match, M. Long met his brother Herbert, winning, 6-4, 6-1, 6-3. The 
first set was close and replete with brilliant plays, but in the other two 
Melville clearly outclassed his brother. On the whole it was rather a 
"family affair." 

Miss Hazel Hotchkiss successfully defended her title as Lady Cham- 
pion, beating Miss Meyer the challenger in straight sets, 6-4, 8-6. The 
match was close and interesting, Miss Hotchkiss' superior net work 
winning for her. Had Miss Meyer had a little more confidence, she 
would liave done better. 

In the Finals Miss Meyer had defeated Mrs. Neimeyer in straight 
sets, 6-4, 7-5. Mrs. Neimeyer was very steady but not aggressive 

Bay Counties Championship. 

The Bay Counties annual event was completed October 26 on the 
Park courts in San Francisco. This Championship wound up the sea- 
son so far as big events are concerned. Mauris McLoughlin won the 
title from Geo. Janes in easy fashion, 6-1, 1 7-5, 6-2. In the Finals he 
disposed of Chas. Foley in a four-set match, 6-4, 4-6, 9-7, 6-2. 

M. Long and C. R. Gardner won the Doubles, defeating C. Griffin 
and R. Hunt in the Challenge Match after five hard sets. In the Finals 
they disposed of C. Foley and H. Long by score of three sets to one. 

Miss Meyer turned the tables on her old-time adversary Miss Hotch- 
kiss in the ladies' Challenge Match and by some beautiful playing won 
the Championship in straight sets, 6-3, 7-5. Miss Meyer previously 
won from Mrs. Neimeyer in the Fnials by a 6-3, 7-5 score. 

The San Francisco Championship. 

The seventh annual city Championship was concluded on the courts 
of the California Lawn Tennis Club on May 30, Maurice McLoughlin 
becoming the new Champion. His victory was not unlooked for and 
there were many "I told you so's" heard, after the completion of the 

It was a remarkable fact that every man he defeated in the tourna- 
ment was a member of the Championship class. He first defeated 
Herbert Long (State Champion), 6-3, 3-6, 6-2; then Geo. Janes (Bay 
Counties Champion), 6-3, 8-6 and followed that up Jby taking the Coast 
Champion, Melville Long, into camp 6-3, 13-11. In the Finals he had 



en "H 




Lawn Tennis in California 213 

a close call at the hands of C. R. Gardner, ex-City Champion, the match 
going the full five sets and the Final set to deuce. Gardner won the 
first set, 6-2, playing a fast hard net game, but McLoughlin took the next 
6-4 and the third 6-3. Again Gardner rallied and won the fourth 6-4. 
In the fifth McLoughlin did some remarkable playing running the score 
up to 4-1 in short order, but Gardner tied it at 4-4. The set finally 
went to McLoughlin &-6. 

In the Challenge Match McLoughlin defeated Charles Foley in a 
four-set match. Foley was not at his best and McLoughlin was de- 
cidedly nervous. The first set was the best going to McLoughlin 9-7. 
The next was his by 6-0 score. Foley won the third 6-3, but Mclaugh- 
lin took the fourth and Final set 6-2. 

San Francisco Grammar School Tournament. 

The second tournament for San Francisco Grammar School Cham- 
pionship took place on the courts of the Park Club during summer 
in which there was an unusual amount of interest. 

The first grammar school tournament was held two years ago and 
won by Maurice McLoughlin, the Voting player who now holds the 
Coast Championship. It was thought that B. Batkin of the Crocker 
Grammar Scnool or J. Strachan of the Adams Grammar School would 
prove the winner of the tournament, but F. Hobson (also of the Crocker 
Scnool) disposed of these young players rather easily, playing in true 
Champion form with good strokes and plenty of confidence. 

The Scores: 

Men's Singles.

214 Lawn Tennis in California 


The twenty-third annual lawn tennis tournament for the Champion- 
ship of Southern California was held at the courts of the Country Club, 
Ocean Park, California, during the week beginning July 29 and ending 
August 3, 1907. Judged both from number of entries as well as class 
of play, the tournament was one of the most successful ever held in 
Southern California. There were fifty- three entries in the Open Singles, 
among whom were Melville H. Long, Pacific Coast Champion forl906, 
Harold H. Braly, Southern California Champion for 1906, Allen V. 
Duncan of Princeton, S. B. Marston of Cornell, Arthur Gowan of 
Stanford, Claude Wayne and R. H. F. Variel, Jr. of Berkeley, A. E. 
Bell, Nat B. Browne, T. C. Bundy and S. M. Sinsabaugh of Los Angeles. 

As was predicted by many followers of the game, Melville H. Long 
proved to be the victor in the Open Singles, defeating in turn E. Conde 
Jones, Allen V. Duncan, Charles Rogers, Carl Gardner, A. E. Bell 
in the Semi-Fin als and S. M. Sinsabaugh in the Finals without the loss 
of a set up to this point. In the t Championship Match in which Long 
challenged Braly, the spectators who filled the grandstand and grounds 
to overflowing, were treated to the finest exhibition of tennis ever wit- 
nessed in Southern California. Braly had not been well for several 
weeks and had not expected to defend his title until prevailed upon by 
his colleagues of the Siouth to defend his laurels against Northern inva- 
sion. But when play began, it was soon seen that it would not be a 
walk-away match. Braly throughout played a heady and aggressive 
game, conserving his strength whenever possible and extending Ix>ng 
to his utmost for the entire five sets. 

Braly 's terrific service almost invariably won his service game for 
him but he also experienced great difficulty in breaking through Ixmg's 
service. Braly led at 5-4 in the first set but Ixwig did some very clever 
up-hill playing, using effectively his famous fore-hand cross-court volley 
and winning the set 7-5. Braly annexed the next two sets by scores of 
6-4, and 6-3 while Long won the fourth set at 7-5. 

When they came out for the fifth set excitement ran high. Braly on 
account of his physical condition had shown some signs of fatigue and 
it was feared that Long would win an easy victory in the deciding set. 
But, contrary to expectation, this set was the closest and hardest-fought 
of the match. Each won their own serves up to five-all. From then 
on, at different times, each held the advantage game but the other would 
always even up the score. Seven times Braly needed but one point 

Lawn Tennis in California 215 

to win the match but did not have enough " ginger" left to follow up 
his advantage, Long showing remarkable nerve at these critical times. 
When the score stood 12-all, they had been playing for over three hours 
and Braly was so exhausted *hat he could not follow in his serve, Long 
taking the advantage game. Thejtwenty-sixth game of the set Long 
won handily, thus winning the match and Championship by a score of 
7-5, 4-6, 3-6, 7-5, 14-12, from which it will be seen that Long won a total 
of 35 games against a total of 34 for Braly. 

There were twenty teams entered in the Gentlemen 's Doubles. Wayne 
and Variel (of Berkeley) won the tournament, defeating Long and 
Gardner in the Semi-Finals, and Bell and Way in the Finals. In the 
Challenge Round against Sinsabaugh and Browne, 1906 Champions, 
they had two sets to one and the score stood 6-all on the fourth set when 
the match had to be postponed on account of darkness. When the 
match was resumed the following Saturday Sinsabaugh and Browne 
succeeded in pulling out the fourth set 8-6 and won the deciding set 
6-0. By successfully defending their title this year, it gives Sinsabaugh 
and Browne two wins on the handsome Doubles Trophies. Bell and 
Way also have two wins, and as a third win gives permanent possession 
of the cups, it is expected that Bell and Way will make a hard fight to 
reach the Challenge Round next year. 

In the Ladies' Singles Miss Florence Sutton won from Miss Alice 
Scott in the Finals, 5-7, 6-3, 6-1. Miss Scott is the first lady other than 
a Sutton who has taken a set from any of the Suttons in a Southern Cali- 
fornia tournament. In the Challenge Match Miss Florence Sutton de- 
feated her sister Mrs. B. O. Bruce, 1906 Champion, by a score of 9-7, 6-4. 

In the Finals of Mixed Doubles Miss Florence Sutton and S. M. 
Sinsabaugh befeated Mrs. O. B. Bruce and Tom Bundy in a close 
match, 6-8, 7-5, 6-2. In the Finals of Ladies' Doubles, Miss Florence 
Sutton and Miss Alice Scott won from Miss Peralta and Miss Sterling, 
6-1, 6-2. In the Junior Singles, which brought out many promising 
young players, Winfred Mace won in the Finals from Ward Dawson 
by a score of 6-3, 5-7, 6-4. The Ladies ' Special event was won by Miss 
Eleanor Peralta and the Consolation Singles by A. J. Gowan of Stanford.

Tennis Club in Nordhoff (near Santa Barbara} in Southern California 
were held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, April 25, 26 and 27 1907. 

The entry list of 123 was the largest in the history of the club. The 
weather was warm and pleasant so that all enjoyed not only the tennis 
but also the tea which was served each afternoon on the club-house porch, 
the ice cream served under the largest oak, and the moonlight outdoor 
concert given by the Throop Mandolin Club.

fornia. About twice as many schools sought invitations as could be

NE of the most historic tennis tournaments on the continent "The 
International at Niagara-on-the-Lake" proved a grand success and 
the quality of play seemed to rival the good old days when America's 
first players battled for Championship honors. The chief feature, of 
course, with this year centered in the appearance of Miss May Sutton, 
the world's Lady Champion, fresh from her conquests in Great Brit- 
ain, Miss Moore and Miss Rotch from the Eastern states. Such was 
the delight of the many spectators in the ladies' events that in future 
the tournament will make a specialty of ladies' entries. Miss Bessie 
Moore, by her genial nature and splendid play, completely won the 
hearts of her many Canadian friends and in response to many requests 
consented to take charge of the ladies' events for the tournament of 

Irving Wright successfully defended his title of International Cham- 
pion by defeating the new Canadian Champion, J. F. Foulkes of Ottawa, 
in three hard and well played sets. 

Great interest was also taken in the Final Round of the Mixed Doubles 
when Miss Rotch and Mr. Niles, defeated Miss Moore and Mr. Wright 
after three strenuous sets in which Miss Rotch and Miss Moore won 
rounds of applause from the large gathering for their splendid tennis. 

In the Canadian Championship events Mr. Foulkes of Ottawa carried 
off the honors as Canadian Champion after a week's well-played tennis, 
and in the Doubles Mr. Glassco and Mr. Burns succeeded in retaining- 
their title. Miss Noyes won the Ladies' Championship. 

Prospects for 1908 are very bright and a large attendance is looked for.

The Canadian Championship was held on the grass courts of the 
Queens Royal Hotel, Niagara-on-the-Lake, the week of August 28. 
1007. There was more interest and enthusiasm than for a number 
'of years particularly among the Canadian tennis players owing to a new 
departure being introduced by the Canadian Lawn Tennis Association 
which was that the Canadian Championship be held for Canadians 
only, which proved very popular bringing out quite a good entry lisf 
of players from different parts of Canada who never played at this tourna 
ment before, and no doubt the idea will show its good results with a 
larger entry list next season than ever before. 

J. F. Foulkes of Ottawa won the Championship after some verr 
steady playing throughout the week. Miss Moves oi Toronto defeated 
Miss Hague of Montreal after a well-played tnree-set match for the 
ladies' Canadian Championship. 

The Doubles were won by E. S. Glassco and Ralph Burns of Toronto.

The ninth annual tournament of the Province of Quel>ec Lawn Tennis 
Association commenced this year on September 3, a month later than 
usual, the reason for this being that so many people are out of town 
during August. 

The beautiful new grounds of the Mount Royal Tennis Club were 
placed at our disposal, and the nine perfect grass courts made it easy 
for the committee to run the matches off on schedule time. 

The only disappointing feature of the meet was the weather, it rained 
every day for two weeks and necessitated postponing play, and on this 

280 Canadian Lawn Tennis 

account several Toronto and Kingston players who had promised to 
come on from the Niagara tournament, failed to appear. However, 
the local entries were larger than ever, and the interest taken by the 
public shows what strides tennis is making in Montreal. 

The matches were followed by a large gallery, and most of them 
were close and exciting. Mr. T. Y. Sherwell is again open Champion, 
successfully defending his cup against G. W. Grier, runner-up. Mr. 
H. M. Suckling for the sixth time won the Montreal Cup, representing 
the Championship of the city, defeating Mr. Watts in the Finals. 

The ladies' events and Mixed Doubles were features of the meet, 
and great interest was shown by the fair sex in these events, which were 
introduced for the first time. 

The club entertained at luncheon and dinner during the week, and 
a perfectly good time was enjoyed by everybody. On Saturday the 
cups and prizes were presented by the president, Mr. A. D. Anderson.

The seventh annual tournament of this association was held on the 
pretty grounds of the South End Lawn Tennis Club in Halifax on August 
17 to 23, 1907. 

The various clubs throughout Nova Scotia were not as well represented 
as they should have been largely on account of the superior playing of 
the* Halifax people, but the tournament was well contested especially 
in the gentlemen's events. Messrs. W. I. Wood and A. Landry putting 

Canadian Lawn Tennis 288 

up a remarkably fine fight against Messrs. F. T. Handsombody and C. 
Grant the present Champions who were playing in fine form. 

This year a new rule was adopted which provided that the Champions 
of last year did not play throughout the tournament but that the winners 
of this year's events should challenge the Champions. This rule proved 
very successful and made the tournament more interesting by allowing 
some of the younger players to win out. The Championship events 
were played off on Saturday and resulted in the following ladies and 
gentlemen being winners, these becoming Champions of Nova Scotia: 

The Scores: 

Ladies' Singles.

also a Special Gold Badge, while the runners-up were awarded second 

The ladies of the club provided tea during the week, and a large num- 
ber of spectators were in attendance.

ships held in Halifax for some years took place on the fine grounds of 
the Wanderers Amateur Athletic Club, Halifax.

ciation were present, but unfortunately those of the Prince Edward Island

Regiment had presented a handsome trophy to be awarded to the Cham- 
pion of the Gentlemen's Singles to be held for one year and to be won 
out by any player winning same three times not necessarily in consecu- 
tive years.

Once more the courts of the Victoria Lawn Tennis Club were the 
scenes of much gaiety, the occasion being the annual open tournament 
held during the first week of August. 

Visitors this year were very numerous including G. Sieler of Odessa. 
Wash., Tracy Crawford and Reuben G. Hunt of Oakland, Cal., Miss 
Beckett, Miss Jukes, Miss King, Miss Hobson, Messrs. B. Rhodes, 
Cave-Browne-Cave of Vancouver, F. A. Macrae of New Westminster, 
Miss E. Ryan of Santa Monica, Cal., Ray Thomson of Tacoma and 
Joe Tyler of Seattle, the holder of the Championship Singles. Among 
those who were missed were Miss P. Pooley who was absent in England, 
Miss Alice Bell who has left Victoria, and F. Temple Cornwall who has 
also removed to other climes. 

As usual the club was favored with excellent weather and many excit- 
ing matches were witnessed by large galleries during the week, the 
attendance on the final afternoon being the largest in the history of the 

Much uneasiness was felt lest the remaining Championships should 
be taken by our friends across the line, thus following the example set 
by Tyler 01 Seattle in 1906, when he won the Singles Championship of 
B. G, but not only were they kept here but our local Champion Mr. 
B. P. Schwengers succeeded m winning back the honor which he lost 
the previous year. 

In the Men's Singles Mr. Hunt was looked upon as a likely winner 
but though he played well and worked his way to the Semi-Finals, 
he was defeated by Schwengers in a three-set match. In the other 
half A. T. Goward disposed of Crawford (6-4," 6-2) who had previously 
beaten Thomson of Tacoma, 6-4, 6-0. Goward and Schwengers met 
in the Finals to decide who should have the honor of challenging Tyler 
for the Championship, and Schwengers playing the best tennis ne had 
ever shown won quite easily, not only in three straight sets but only 
allowing Goward five games. After this easy victory. Schwengers was 
installed as favorite for the Championship, and the choice was justified 
as on the following afternoon in lovely weather and in the presence 
of a large and enthusiastic audience, Tyler met defeat. Schwengers 
played in even better form than on the aay before; his control of the 
ball was almost perfect. He out-drove, out-placed and out-generalled 
Tyler completely and won by three sets to one. Score: 8-6, 6-1, 3-6, 6-4. 


British Columbia Champion 

Canadian Lawn Tennis 241 

In the Ladies' Singles Miss E. Ryan, Miss Beckett and Miss M. 
Pitts were probably the three strongest players entered. Miss Pitts 
defeated Mrs. Arundell of Victoria without the loss of a game, but she 
was in turn defeated by Miss Beckett of Vancouver. In the Finals 
Miss E. Ryan easily defeated Miss Beckett, 6-1, 6-2, and won the Cham- 
pionship by default from her sister who did not defend. ^ 

In the Men's Doubles there were several good teams including Hunt 
and Crawford who were beaten in the Semi-Final Round by Schwengers 
and Macrae after the Californians had defeated Major Williams and 
McDougall, the latter team at one time in this match leading by three 
games to love in the Final set. In the Finals Schwengers and Macrae 
repeated their success of the year before, defeating the same team, Goward 
and Tyler, 6-3, 2-6, 6-3, 6-0. 

In the Ladies' Doubles Miss M. Pitts and Miss E. Ryan had no 
trouble defeating all their opponents with ease, and winning out in the 
Finals from Miss King and Miss Hobson of Vancouver, 6-1, 6-4. 

The Mixed Doubles produced some lovely tennis and as usual attracted . 
much attention. Probably the best game was that between Hunt and 
Mrs. Burton and Meredith and Miss Pitts which was exceedingly close 
and only won by the latter pair after three hard sets, 5-7, 8-6, 6-4. An- 
other good game was that between Tyler and Miss Ryan and Major 
Williams and Mrs. Read, the former eventually winning, 6-4, 6-4. In 
the Finals Tyler and Miss Ryan rather easily defeated Meredith and 
Miss M. Pitts, 6-1, 6-2. 

During the week the ladies of the club assisted by friends supplied 
tea and other refreshments and with the presentation of prizes on Satur- 
day afternoon another successful tournament passed into history. 

Tennis is becoming so popular in Victoria, that the club has found it 
absolutely necessary to look for new grounds, and negotiations are now 
being carried on with the hope of obtaining a large tract of over six 
acres situated on the beautiful waters of Victoria Arm and accessible 
by boat or land craft. The club intends to build six courts as well as 
several ^croquet andjsowling greens, and when this work is completed, 
as it isihoped it soon will be, will possess property and surroundings 
second to none on the coast.

The annual open tournament of the Vancouver Lawn Tennis Club 
for the Championship of the Mainland, and the annual tournament 
of the North Pacific International Lawn Tennis Association, were held 
simultaneously on the grounds of the former club in Vancouver, B. C, 
the week commencing August 12, 1907. There was a very large atten- 
dance, both of players and spectators, and the tournaments were conceded 
to be by far the best exhibitions of the game ever held on the Pacific 
Coast. The Vancouver Lawn Tennis Club had gone to very great 
trouble and expense in preparing for the tournaments and to show 
that the club's efforts were thoroughly appreciated is shown by the 
following resolution which was unanimously passed at the annual meet- 
ing of the association, held during the^weet: 

"Whereas; never before have so complete and perfect arrangements 
'been made for conducting an annual tournament of this association, 
and the executive committee, being deeply appreciative of the unusual 
and extraordinarily successful efforts put forth by the local managers 
and the great expense incurred by the local club to insure the success 
of the meeting; 

"Be it resolved; that the sincere thanks of this association be tendered 
to the Vancouver Lawn Tennis Club and especially to the chairman 
of its tournament committee, Mr. E. Cave-Browne-Cave, and his able 
assistants, for the very satisfactory manner in which everything has been 
arranged for the success of the meeting and the comfort and entertain- 
ment of the visitors."

on account of the opposing teams representing Canada and the United 
States respectively, there being a large number of visitors from both 
countries. It was a magnificent struggle. It was the last match of

imagined than described.

The season of 1907 at the Merion Cricket Club was one of marked 
activity and interest in tennis, and the several tournaments held on the 
club's grounds developed the skill of the players and also gave pleasure 
to many who enjoyed watching the games. 

The season began with an Invitation Round-Robin tournament, 
held under the auspices of the United States Lawn Tennis Association 
for the American Tennis Team, consisting of Beals C. Wright and Karl 
Behr, other noted players also taking part in the tournament. 

The annual women's tournament was held June 3 and following days, 
its scope being enlarged this year, so as to include the Championship of 
Pennsylvania and Eastern States, thus becoming a tournament of great 
importance and attracting a large number of players, including repre- 
sentatives from New York, Boston and other cities. 

The tournament was won by Miss Edith Rotch of the Longwood C. C, 
who defeated Miss Eleanora Sears in the Finals by the score of 6-1, 
6-4, Miss Rotch also winning the Singles Championship through the 
default of the. holder for 1906. The Championship in Doubles, won 
won by Miss Eleanora Sears and Miss Marion Fenno, both of the Long- 
wood C. C, defeating Mrs. Gilbert and Mrs. Hibbs in the Finals, and 
winning the Championship through the default of the 1906 holders. 
The Mixed Doubles were won by Miss Rachel Harlan and Dr. P. B. 
Hawk of the Belmont C. C. 

The Pennsylvania State Championship. 

The state of Pennsylvania men's tournament was held June 10 and 
following days, and being open to all players, had a large entry list, 
some thirty-two players taking part in the Singles competition. The 
tournament was most remarkable from the fact that although having 
such a large entry list, not a single player defaulted in the tournament. 
Players from the Universities of Pennsylvania and Princeton, the Phila- 
delphia C. C, Germantown C. C, Belmont C. <i, Huntingdon Valley 
Country Club, Merion C. G, and other clubs took part in the tourna- 
ment, which abounded with many close matches and excellent tennis. 
The Finals proved to be a long, hard-fought, 5-set contest between 
J. R. Carpenter, Jr.,. and Dr. E. B. Dewhurst, the former finally winning 
the Final set and match by the score, 9-7. Mr. Carpenter also won the 

250 State Tournaments 

Championship in Singles, through the default of William J. Clothier, 
the 1906 holder. 

The Championship in Doubles was won by William J. Clothier and 
George Brooke of the Merion C. C, who defeated Ewing Stille and

The seventh annual open lawn tennis tournament for the Cham- 
pionship of Virginia was held on the courts of the Greenway Tennis 
Club, Norfolk, Va., under the auspices of the Country Club, the latter 
not being in a position to hold the tournament on account of having 
recently sold their property at Sewall's Point. 

The entry list, while not large, consisted of a very good class of players. 
The Championship was again won by Mr. Hugh G. Whitehead of 
Norfolk, thus giving him two legs on the cup. The Doubles were won 
by Messrs. M. A. Agelasto and Walter H. Taylor, Jr., and the lady 
Champion is Miss M. C. Evans of Richmond, who now owns the trophy 
having won it for three years.

The second annual Invitation tennis tournament for the Champion- 
ship of West Virginia, was held at the Parkersburg Country Club, Par- 
kersburg, W. Va., September 9, 10 and 11, 1907, and was the largest 
and most successful event ever held at the club. 

The weather was all that could be desired, and the club's four clay 
courts were in perfect condition and very fast. The entry Jist was un- 
usually large, there being 36 entries in Singles and 18 teams in Doubles, 
and comprised players from all sections of the state. 

The club is admirably arranged for the entertainment of visitors and 
the conveniences afforded by it and the courteous treatment extended 
was a source of great satisfaction to the visiting players. 

Informal affairs on the evenings of the first and second days and a 
large club dance on the evening of the third day, brought to a dose 
a most successful meet. 

The handsome silver Challenge Cup was won by Mr. Ward White 
in the Challenge Round from Mr. Everett Drennen (holder), and this 
match was productive of some very clever racket work. White showed 
great form and won rather easily in straight sets, 6-3, 6-1, 6-3. 

Individual cups were presented to J. O. Watson, runner-up in Singles, 
and to White and Drennen, winners in Doubles. 

Handsome flasks were also presented to R. A. Johnson, winner in 

266 State Tournaments 

Singles, and to Faker and Henderson, in Poulles, in tl e Con- 
solation events. 

The adding of th e Consolation events was a new feature of tl e tourna- 
ment, and proved to be a most successful innovation, as the keenest 
interest was manifested in all tl e plays until tl e last match was finished.

Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. 

The ninth annual Cincinnati Open Tennis Tournament for the Tri- 
State Championships of Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky was held by the 
Ohio Lawn Tennis Association and under the auspices of the United 
States National Lawn Tennis Association on the courts of the Cin- 
cinnati Lawn Tennis Club. Play began on the afternoon of Saturday, 
August 31st, and was to have concluded on Saturday, September 7th. 
But due to a protracted rain on Labor Day, September 2nd, the com- 
mittee were unable to effect the completion of but one match. This 
caused the tournament to continue through Monday, September 9th. 

The Cincinnati Tournament has since its inception steadily grown 
until it has assumed a position of considerable importance among the 
various tennis meets in the United States. The "Tri" has become a 
familiar sobriquet, especially in the East The present tournament 
went far towards maintaining the claim of its supporters as to its being 
second only to one in respect to the caliber of the entrants and quality 
of the play. The entry list in Men's Singles surpassed by ten even 
that of 1906 when seventy-eight contested for the honor of challenging 

£70 State Tournaments 

the Tri-State Champion, Beals C. Wright. But there was another 
distinguishing feature of even more importance in that the list included 
the names of some of the leaders in the tennis world. Considerable 
disappointment was felt at Beals C. Wright's decision not to defend 
his title, and also at the inability of Karl Behr to be present. Their 
absence was to a large degree compensated by the appearance of the 
well-known faces of K. D. Little and Robert LeRoy. In addition to 
these came others who had given good account of themselves earlier 
in the season. Foremost among the&e were R. Chauncey Seaver, 
Massachusetts State Champion, Richard H. Palmer, who surprised 
Newport by his defeat of Karl Behr in the First Round of the Nationals, 
Nat. Nile* of Boston and Irving C. Wright, the brilliant younger brother 
of the title holder. From the South came J. Floyd Day and Norman 
Farrell, Jr., of Nashville, Tenn., from California there was M. G. Chase 
and numerous other familiar and strange faces were seen that showed 
that the efforts of the committee had borne fruit in many different parts 
of the country. The progress of the new men from the East was watched 
with the keenest interest. Nat Niles went down to defeat in the Fourth 
Round when he met Nat. Emerson, the Western Champion; the Cin- 
cinnati man was playing in his best form and won so easily that many 
had their hopes raised tnat he might reach the Semi-Finals by defeat- 
ing LeRoy. But Thursday, these hopes were dashed by his defeat 
in straight sets by LeRoy, 6-3, 6-3. The only other local man to get 
within striking distance of the Semi-Finals was Wm. P. Hunt, who all 
but took the measure of R. H. Palmer. Up to this time the Easterner 
had won his matches handily in straight sets, but in Hunt be found a 
worthy opponent. 

Much interest centered in Irving C. Wright, and the similarity to 
his brother was noticed at once, both in appearance on the court and 
in the style of his play. In his very first played set he was twice within 
n point of losing, but he proved too strong for his opponent, Mark 
Mitchell of Cincinnati, and finally won the set 9-7. The second set 
was won easily by Wright, 6-1. On the following day, Wednesday, 
it was thought he would have a harder proposition when he met Dr. 
Karl Little, Champion of Georgia, Kentucky and Southern Ohio, but 
the uncertainty of tennis was never more in evidence for the Cincinnati 
man was away off in his play and succeeded in winning but one game 
in the two sets. In the meantime, R. C. Seaver had had little trouble 
in reaching the Fourth Round; in that round on Wednesday, he met 
Lincoln Mitchell, who had in the morning, by brilliant play, defeated 

State Totonaments 271 

H. T. Emerson, a brother of Nat. Emerson, in a closely contested 
match. This match seemed to put him on his settle for the afternoon 
play and he fought hard and made Seaver battle through a long deuce 
set before he finally lost The match went to Seaver, 0-7, 6-2. This 
brought Seaver and Wright together in the Fifth Round, and though 
it was apparent that the latter had not struck his gait, he was picked 
as the winner. However, this proved to be one of the many surprises 
in the tournament and after some of the most brilliant playing of the 
tournament Seaver annexed the match, 8-6, 6-4. He demonstrated 
that he is one of the greatest "getters*' that has ever been seen here, 
and fully lived up to his nick-name, "Race-Horse" Seaver. Wright 
was clearly not atnis best, and the chief difference between his play and 
that of his brother was shown to be that it is more brilliant but less steady. 
R. D. Little reached the Semi-Knals by his defeat of Cbas. Farber of 
Columbus, one of the fixtures of the tournament. Meanwhile the ladies 
had been contesting for the honor of being defeated by Miss May Sutton, 
who was present fresh from her many victories in the British Isles and 
at Canada. With her, from Canada, came Miss Lois Moves, the woman 
Champion of Canada, and it was generally conceded that she would 
be the one to stand as the last obstacle in the path of Miss Sutton to the 
possession of the "Tri-State Cup," the Women's Challenge Trophy. 
However, this proved another calculation to be upset, and on Wednes- 
da-;, Miss Martha Kinsey of Cincinnati succeeded in easily defeating 
the Canadian player, 6-4, 6-0. Mr. George Wright who was an inter- 
ested spectator of the play, spoke in very nigh terms of Miss Kinsey's 
playingability, and expressed the hope that 1908 would find her play- 
ing at rhiladelphia. The Challenge Round was played on the Cbam- 
gionship court, Saturday afternoon, prior to the Final Round in Men's 
ingles, Miss Kinsey made a brave stand and succeeded in deucirg 
several games and winning one in each set. But at the end the crowd 
was cheering the California girl who had become for the third consecu- 
tive time Tri-State Champion and permanent possessor of the beautiful 
"Tri-State Cup." This cup having unfortunately disappeared, the com- 
mittee gave assurances that it would be replaced and the association 
ordered an exact duplicate of the trophy. The association will offer 
another trophy in the Ladies' Singles Championship event, to be pla? ed 
for under rules similar to those which governed competition for tie 
"Tri-State Cup" won by Miss Sutton. 

The two Semi-Finals in Men's Singles on Friday afternoon were 
exceptionally interesting. The remarkable hold that tennis has on the 

272 State Tournaments 

people in and around Cincinnati was shown by good crowds on each 
day^and this steadily increased to over 2,000 who came to witness the 
Semi-Finals, many having stayed during the hinch hour to retain seats 
of vantage. The match between little and Seaver fully repaid these 
enthusiasts, as it went the full five-sets and was brilliant tennis all the 
wav through. Seaver strengthened the impression he made the day 
before by his defeat of Wright and took tnis match by the scores of 
6-0, 2-6, 6-2, 5-7, 6-8, thereby earning bis way to the Finals by good, 
hard, deserving play. The other Semi-Final Round, though less pro- 
tracted, was scarcely less interesting. Palmer, with the memory of 
his defeat at Newport by LeRoy fresh in his mind, fought hard in the 
realization of this chance to even up matters. But he could not quite 
reach, and though he seemed steadily to be growing stronger, he stopped 
just short of accomplishing the win of the third set and the match went 
to LeRov, 6-0, 6-3, 8-6. 

This brought Seaver and LeRoy together in the Final Round, which 
was also the Championship Round, by reason of the decision of Beals 
C. Wright to default. After the completion of the Championship Round 
in Ladies' Singles, the two finalists stepped on the Championship 1 
court, amid the applause of the 3,500 people who had braved the darken- 
ing skies and occasional rains. Seaver was there, determined again 
to upset the "dope" and LeRoy as equally determined to put an effectual 
stop to the successful advance of his opponent. And it was a battle 
well worth seeing, the first set going to LeRoy, 8-6, the second set, almost 
the exact reverse all the way through, went to Seaver, 8-6. From this 
point the tide turned against Seaver and it was a steady advance for 
LeRoy to victory, and by taking the next two sets he at last won the 
prize, so long and consistently fought for the Tri-State Championship. 
By this win he becomes the first holder of the new "Georg** ueCamp 
Trophy/' a silver punch bowl and salver offered in honor of the late 
George DeCamp, as a tribute to the man to whose energy and loyal 
work the success of past Tri-State Tournaments has been large]} due. 
This trophy takes the place of the "Governor's Bowl" which in 1906 
became the permanent property of Beals C. Wright. 

Miss Sutton ard Miss Noyes were compelled to. default in the Indies' 
Doubles, due to the enforced departure of Miss Noyes. Tbe Finals 
resulted in the defeat of Miss Natalie Breed and Miss*,Adele (Krure by 
Miss Ruth Cowing and Miss Martha Kinsey, 6-1, 6-3. In the Mixed 
Doubles there were some very interesting matches, illuminative of this 
peculiar style of play, but the result was disappointing as the Final 

State Tournaments 275 

Round was won by default by Miss Sutton and Mr. Wright, due to the 
illness of Miss Marjorie Dodd, wbo was to have appeared with Mr. 
LeRoy in the Finals of the event The loss of an entire day caused 
by the rain on Labor Day made it impossible to complete all the events 
in the scheduled time, and it was decided by the committee to play the 
Semi-Finals and Finals in Men's Doubles on the following Monday. 
Robert LeRoy and Irving Wright won their matches handily against 
R. C. Seaver and Nat Niles, 6-S, 7-5, 6-8. Meanwhile R. D. Little 
and Nat. Emerson were having a harder time of it with H. T. Emerson 
and Wm. T. Hunt, who were made confident by the memory of their 

Seat five-set victory over It EL Palmer and Nelson Peebles on Saturday, 
ttle and Emerson finally proved the winners, 6-3, 9-7, 4-6, 6-1. By 
this time Little and Emerson were getting more used to each other 
and their team work was much improved. Yet the majority of the 
followers of the game picked LeRoy and Wright as the winners, and 
at the end of the third set with the score two to one in sets in their 
favor, it looked as though the calculation was correct, but Little and 
Emerson came strong after the rest and took the next two sets, 6-2, 6-2. 
Much of the play was directed against Emerson but he resisted splen- 
didly, and it was generally conceded that the Western man was holding 
bis own with the fast trio of Easterners. LeRoy played brilliantly 
at the start, while Wright seemed a little off, as play progressed, however, 
things reversed and Wright was the stronger. The entire match de- 
veloped some beautiful and exciting tennis and was greatly enjoyed by 
the large number of spectators who continually showed their appre- 
ciation of the finer points of the game. At the deciding point a great 
cheer went up which marked the close of the Tri-State Tournament 
of 1907. 

Entries may be made for the tournament of 1908, by communication 
to Nat. Emerson, 1620 First National Bank Building, Cincinnati, Ohio.

The first official tennis state tournament ever held in Indiana was 
given by the Irvington Tennis Club on its four new courts at Butler Col- 
lege, commencing September 9 and concluding September 14. Forty 
men were entered in Singles, twenty-three teams in Doubles and twelve 
teams in Mixed Doubles. 

Fred Appell, a recent Princeton graduate, and Charles Trask, an old 
Yale man, pulled through to the Finals, where Mr. Appell, by his su- 
perior tactics beat Mr. Trask. 

In the Doubles, Mitchell and Ackerland from Cincinnati recently 
home from Yale and Harvard, were generally picked to win the Doubles, 
with possibly Rice and McMullen giving them a fight in the Finals, but 
Sutpnin and Geddess, two dark horses, pulled through the field and met 
Mitchell and Ackerland in the Finals, and in a stubbornly contested 
match overcame them. In the Semi-finals Kingsbury, Jr., and Hap- 
good made a game stand against Sutphin and Geddess, but after taking 
the first set thev lost the last three. 

In the Mixed Doubles Mr. Holton and Miss Hutchinson by superior 
team work finally won, after a stubborn fight with Mr. Walker and Miss 
Stillson. Both Miss Hutchinson and Miss Stillson are players of great

Favored by the most ideal weather conditions imaginable, for a tennis 
tournament, the fifth annual event of the Aztec Tennis Club of Chicago 
for the Illinois State Championship, was held on the beautiful turf courts 
of Chicago's northside club on July 13 and following days. From one 
Saturday to the other the week was cloudless, the temperature perfect, 
the courts fast, the galleries unusually large and the conditions as a whole 
the best ever seen in Chicago. The entries in the Singles numbered 64, 
while in the Doubles 22 teams started in the initial Round. In the 
women's events the list was not only exceptionally large, but the "clas- 
siest" of recent years as well. The interest in the event was greatly 
heightened by the appearance of Carr Neel, ex-Western Champion, and 
scores of people who watched Neel play back in the nineties, journeyed 
to the^orthphorejgrounds to see their old idol play. 

JThe event began on Saturday, July 13, with the courts in the best 
-possible condition, a heavy steam roller having been kept constantly at 

980 State Tottbnaments 

work upon them during the week previous. The draw was highly satis- 
factory-^the best players being well scattered. The first two rounds 
in the Singles tended merely to "weed out" the poorer players and few 
matches of interest were played, 

The Men's Doubles brougit out much good play and several surprises 
were scored. The first of these came in the Second Round, when Can- 
Nee! and Kreigh Collins playing together, went down to defeat before 
McKeever and Champlin, a good team, but one hardly equal on form 
to be ranked with the Western Champions. In this match Collins' eyes 
early gave him trouble and he missed the easiest of shots and at times 
failed to hit the ball altogether^ while Neel apparently discouraged by 
his partner's work also put up a ragged exhibition and his best efforts 
failed to avail much. 

The women 's events, attracted this year, one of the Lest entry lists ever 
recorded in a Western event and the play from the first to last was of an 
exceptionally high standard and was productive of many close and ex- 
citing matches. The feature, however, unquestionably came when Mrs. 
Robot Williams, a young woman player of the Aztec Club, met Miss 
Carrie B. Neely, fresh from her Eastern triumphs, in the Final Round. 
In this match the play of Mrs. Williams was a revelation to her most 
ardent admirers and yet no tennis player ever enjoyed greater popularity 
on the courts. She drove with the force of a man and her whole styk 
of game was at once aggressive and cool. 

But she lacked one thing — steadiness at critical stages — and this one 
element of weakness allowed Miss Neely to triumph over her after the 
closest of fights — the Final score being 8-6, 6-1. This victory allowed 
Miss Neely the right to challenge Miss Miriam Steever, the title holder, 
and as expected a battle-roval resulted. Three hard sets were necessary 
to determine the winner m this match, Miss Neely, however, finally 
winning out, 8-6, 3-6, 6-2. In the Women's Doubles Misses Neely and 
Steever proved victorious, defeating Mrs. Williams and Miss Lee in the 
Final Match, 6-0, 6-2.

Silver Bow Club, and a visit to the Pennsylvania mine where photographs

settled down to a struggle between Butlm and- MacQuiston for the 
supremacy. In the Finals Butlin easily vanquished his most formi-

the Single Championship by his fast cross court drives and superior 
all-round playing. Russ and Cresson, MacQuiston Bros, and Walthall 
Bros, were all strong competitors for the trophy cup in Doubles. By

More than ordinary interest was displayed in Oregon tennis during 

yrhree trophies which had been played for years were in danger of 
being captured permanently and the presence of several of the old-timers 
gave added interest to the contests. 

There was speculation and strife of the healthy kind from start to 
finish and the season ended with more players, better tennis, and much 

morejuiterest than ever before displayed. 
x The State Championship was played ui 
nomah Amateur Athletic Club on Multnomah Field, .July 23 to July 27. 

"The State Championship was played under the auspices of the Mult- 

Joe Tyler from Seattle won his way to the Finals without much trouble 
He was stopped for a time by Major A. Bethel, U. S. A., a twice winner 
of the Fisk trophy and had it not been that Bethel had been on shore 
less than a week after his trip from the Orient, the match would doubt- 
less have proven a closer one. Brant Wickersham also made a strong 
bid without success. 

This brought Tyler against Gross in the Championship Match. Gross 
also played in the Challenge Match in Doubles and here too was much 
interest since both competing teams had won the Ladd cups twice and 
the match was to decide permanent ownership. 

The Double Match was played first and Goss and his partner were 
badly beaten so that when Goss went into the Single Match he probably 
felt somewhat down cast. 

The Single Match was a very pretty display of high-class tennis and 
Gross made a pood fight. The first set he took by perfectly controlling 
his game and by wonderful consistency. The second set was a continu- 
ation of the first and time after time Goss was within one stroke of this 
set He weakened perceptibly, however, and after many long rallies 
and heart-breaking situations, the set went to Tyler. 

800 & State Tournaments 

This ended the match far the last two sets went to Tyler comparatively 

These two men have met many times in tournament play and Tyler 
is the best man because he has always won. The scores nave indicated 
practically a "Toss up" for in nearly every match the loser has been 
within one point of winning. 

Tyler has more speed and plays in better form. He is younger and 
faster. To offset this Gross has better judgment and plays just the 
kind of game that upsets Tyler. May they soon meet again. 

The Double Championsnip^went to Wickersham and Bellingerland 
with it the J. Wessley Ladd cup to become the permanent property 
of the winners. Goss and Lewis, the veteran Oregon team who had 
also won the cups twice and the State Championship several times prior 
to the time when the cups were first presented for competition, were 
the runners-up and a great match was expected. 

The match was great but with the greatness all on one side of the net 
Goss and Lewis could not seem to get started. The day before they 
defeated Tyler and Armstrong who were looked upon as a better team 
than Wickersham and Bellinger. 

In spite of the poor playing of Goss and Lewis too much cannot be 
said of the good work of the Champions. Their team work was far 
better than was expected and their speed was tremendous. 

It is doubtful if any team in the northwest could have broken up the 
game played in the winning match by Wickersham and Bellinger. 

The Ladies' Singles went to Miss] Amy Heitshu and with it the Goss 
and Lewis cup, this also to be the permanent property of Miss Heitshu 
who had won it twice before. 

There is no doubt as to the superiority of Miss Heitshu 's game in 
Oregon and she went through the tournament without the loss of a set. 

The Ladies' Doubles went to Miss Heitshu and Miss Josepbi and 
the Mixed Doubles to Mr. Benham and Miss Leadbetter 

The Consolations in Men's Singles went to J. F. Ewing and the Ladies' 
Consolations in Singles to Miss Fox. 

The prizes were presented by Major Walter A. Bethel, U. S. A., and 
the tournament was rated the most successful yet held in Oregon. 

Later in the season came the Irvington Tennis Club Championship 
and Handicap Tournament combined. 

This last tournament ranked nearly if not quite as important as the 
State Championship. There was a very large entry list and better 
tennis was played than ever before in the state. 

State Tournaments 801 

There is talk of a large invitation tournament to be given by one of 
tne leading hotels at the beach this coming season and there is'great 
hope that many of the Califomians and the players in the northwest 
wifi attend.

306 State Tournaments 


The seventh annual tournament for the Championship of the Middle 
West in Gentlemen's Singles was held as usual on the splendid courts 
of the Omaha Field Club the third week in August. 

The entry list did not quite show the numbers as in the previous two 
years, yet sectionally speaking the states of the Middle West were better 

The entries came from Kansas, Missouri, Colorado, South Dakota, 
Illinois, Iowa and Nebraska. 

The general public took a deep interest in the event, in fact on the 
day the Challenge Match was played many visitors came from otter 
towns and states. Each afternoon, the large veranda and lawns were 
thronged with men and women, and on the final day, when C. C. Peters 
and W. T. Hayes met, the athletic field adjacent to the courts was crowded 
with automobiles, whose honk! honk! in unison with the applause after 
each brilliant play, gave tie event much the appearance of a college foot 
ball game, and showed the great enthusiasm the game has roused in 
the Middle West. 

The tournament was favored with fair weather except the opening 
day, there was a light slower in the afternoon, however, it did not delay 
the play to any speakable degree. Mr. Frederick J. Hill came from 
Minneapolis to again act as official referee, and great credit is due him 
for the manner with which events were pushed along. 

From the standpoint of play, interest centered largely in the veteran 
Dr. Whitney, Champion of Colorado, who survived to the Final Round 
of the Singles, when he was put out by C. C. Peters. Dr. Whitney is 
51 years of age; but he moves about the court with the fleetness of the 
youngest, he plays until the ball is absolutely dead, is game to the last, 
and what is perhaps the most remarkable of all never seems to tire. 
Peters worked his way through the lower half of the draw by defeating 
ft; adinger, Youn |[> Ulatherwick and Caldwell. This put him against 
Whitney in the Finals.^ 

The man from Colorado made a good hght but finally went down to 
Peters, who, however, was unable to defeat Hayes in the Challenge Round 
and the beautiful Middle West Singles Cup goes to Hayes for "keeps" 
haying won it three vears. 

Two years ago if ayes came from his home town in Toledo, Iowa, 
for what was practically his first appearance in tournament play, and

surprised every one by the ease with which he carried everything before 
him. He was rugged and athletic, but his play lacked style. Since 
then he has developed and improved his game greatly, Peters and he 
having played together this year in all the tournaments all around the 
country. The first week in August Hayes won the Iowa Champion- 
ship, while the week after Peters took the Tri-State at Sioux City. There 
was less interest in the Doubles this year owing to tie absence of Kreigh 
Collins, Peters and Hayes playing together went through to the Finals 
without loosing a single set. 

The players were royally entertained each evening and as a social 
event the seventh annual tournament surpassed its predecessors. Tfce 
week was considered one of the biggest in the history of the Field Club, 
the house and grounds being crowded each afternoon and evening. 
This ledjto many dinner parties and entertainments both at the club 
and homes of the players. Special entertainments were also provided 
each evening.

Tennis Assoc. Winner Central Iowa Tournament 



The second annual tournament was held on the courts of the Toledo 
(Iowa) Lawn Tennis Club, July 10-18, 1907, and was productive of 
many close and interesting matches. Interest in this event is growing 
and a silver cup will probably be offered next year for the Singles Cham- 

Dr. J. W. Cogswell of Toledo won his way to the Challenge Round 
in the Singles after closely contested matches with St. Clair, Kaufman 
and Blatherwick, each of whom took one set. The Challenge Round 
brought out some fast tennis. Harold L. Beyer of Grinnell, the winner 
of last vear's tournament, won by three sets to one. Beyer's accuracy 
in playing and his effectiveness at the net were the deciding factors in 
this match, which attracted a good-sized and enthusiastic gallery. 

The Doubles were captured oy W. A. Kaufman and M. A. Trumbull 
of Conrad. Their playing throughout the tournament was character- 
ized by steadiness and persistence, and these qualities in each match 
in which they participated were noteworthy. Their team work was 
excellent and their strokes were clean-cut and strong. This tournament 
has become a permanent annual event at Toledo, and every effort will 
be made to increase the number of entries in 1908.

Salt Lake City, Utah. 

The third annual tournament for the Championship of the Inter- 
Mountain States began August 24 and went over into the next week. 
In every way the tournament was the most successful ever held in Salt 
Lake City. 

Forty-four entries in Men's Singles, and nineteen pairs in Doubles 
show the interest in the game in this part of the country. In the women 's 
tournament fifteen entered in Singles, and nine pairs in Doubles. 

In Men's Singles, Sam Neel, former National Champion in Doubles, 
carried off the honors, winning the tournament and Challenge Match 
without losing a set. 

The largest gallery in the history of the game witnessed the final 
struggle when Sam Neel defeated Garnett in the Finals. Fully 500 
people witnessed the play. 

Neel won the first set rather easily. In the second set, however, 
he was compelled to show his best tennis. After 5-all was called, the 
game see-sawed until finally Neel, by an extra effort, won out. Garnett 
seemed to lose'heart after this set, and Neel took the last one rather 
easily, by a score of 6-1. 

O. J. Salisbury, Inter-Mountain Champion for 1906, met Neel on 
Tuesday, September 3, in a Challenge Round. The game was similar 

316 State Tournaments 

in many respects to the Final Match of the tournament. Salisbury 
made a great stand in the second set, but was finally beaten by the score 
of 11-9. 

In the Men's Doubles, Brown and Badger won from Roberts and 
Myers in the Finals, the score being, 6-2, 6-3, 6-2. It was expected 
that Myers and Roberts would make a hard fight. Brown and Badger, 
however, played a careful and consistent game, and won in rather hollow 

In the Ladies' Singles, Miss Kate Williams, for the third time in 
succession, won the honors. By her victory, this year, she wins^pos- 
session of the beautiful trophy cup. 

In the Women's Doubles, Miss Kate Williams and Miss Maude 
Thorne defeated Mrs. Griffin and Miss Lyons, in the Finals, the scores 
being 6-3 and 7-5. 


The sixth annual Missouri Valley Tennis Championships were held 
at Kansas City, August 26 to 31 and attracted the largest entry in the 
history of the game in this section. The event was given under the 
auspices of the Kansas City Athletic Club and was played at their new 
athletic field, 32nd and Locust streets. * 

Although the courts were brand new, practically never having been 
played upon, they were in remarkably good condition throughout the 
tournament, while the weather man was unusually kind allowing but one 
slight shower during the entire week. 

The entry list in the Singles numbered eighty-one in all, forty-five 
of whom were registered from points outside of Kansas City, which 
makes the tournament the largest affair of its kind held west of Chicago 
during the 1907 season. Players from Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, 
Indian Territory, Iowa and Nebraska took part and were unanimous 
in declaring it easily the premier tennis event of the year for the Middle 
West. The one bit of disappointment in the whole tournament 'was 
that W. T. Hayes, holder of the Omaha Middle West Championship, 
and C. C. Peters, a Chicago crack, after entering were at the last moment 
prevented from attending. 

Harold Hodge, of the Kansas City Athletic Club captured the Singles 
Championship after an heroic struggle through a long list of formidable

opponents and finally defeating O. V. Vernon, of the same club, a three- 
time winner of the honor. The Doubles title went to A. £. Sterling 
and H. H. Brewster of the St. Joseph (Mo.) Lawn Tennis Club, who 
defeated J. S. Tritle and A. A. Hayes, of the K. C. A. C. in thejFinal 
Round, there being no Challenge Round as D. L. James, of James 
and Jones, the holders, was absent in Europe. 

Saturday afternoon, August 31, in the presence of the largest*gallery 
ever assembled in Kansas City to witness a tennis match, Hodge met 
and defeated O. V. Vernon for the Championship of the Missouri Valley. 

The Singles Cup, known as the Guerney and Ware trophy, must be 
won three times to become permanent property. Mr. Vernon now 
has two legs on the cup and Mr. Hodge one. 

The Doubles prizes, silver cups donated by the K. C. A. C, were put 
up this year and require two winnings.

The annual tournament for the Double Championship of Massachu- 
setts was held at the Brae-Burn Country Club courts, West Newton, 
Mass. , beginning May 30 and following days. 

This tournament, like its predecessors, was a success both in the 
character of the play and the interest shown by the spectators. Prob- 
ably the most pleasant feature in connection with the event was the 
general interest and enthusiasm shown, this being particularly notice- 
able by the entire absence of defaults. The courts upon which the 
matches were held are perhaps the best situated in the country. Steep 
banks form a natural amphitheatre and offer a vantage ground for a 
perfect view of the play below. The material of which the courts are 
made gives an ideal playing surface, and the eyes of the players are 
relievea from any disagreeable glare. 

In the Challenge Bound the Johnson Brothers defeated Irving Wright 
and Edgar Leonard after an exciting match. The play fell off at times, 
but there were other times when perfection of play was revealed, light- 
ning-like strokes made and flashes of divination of opposing! players 
play displayed. The win was accomplished by an unexpectedly stub- 
born defense, varied with an aggressive offense that finally broke up 
Wright and Leonard.

TkM ISS May Sutton who has again become the world's Champion for 
-*"* the second time by defeating all the best English lady players, 
first visited England in 1905 winning all the leading tournaments before 
playing at Wimbledon where the Championship is played and winning 
the same without losing a set, defeating Miss Douglass for the honors. 
This alone was a remarkable feat. 

She again went abroad in 1906, this time not being so successful as 
the English ladies were better prepared to meet her style of game. She 
lost to Miss Douglass at Wimbledon who regained the Championship. 

In 1907 Miss Sutton very pluckily crossed the ocean once more to 
battle for her lost honors. During the early spring she practiced hard 
and improved her game, especially her back hand which went a great 
Way toward winning back the Championship, as the English Champion 
played continually to this point. It was a battle royal as both players 
were at the top of their games, but Miss Sutton *s strong forehand strokes 
were too accurate with plenty of speed and perfect control. 

To win the English Championship for tne second time was a great 
honor, as in doing so Miss Sutton had to defeat three of England's 
strongest women players, Miss Lowther, Miss Wilson and Mrs. Cham- 
bers (Miss D. K. Douglass). For such a remarkable record in a strange 
land Miss Sutton deserves the greatest praise. After the match the 
committee presented Miss Sutton with a huge bouquet of flowers. She 
was very popular and always under any conditions showed the best 

Following are the matches played upon her 1907 visit: 

Manchester — Final Round: Mrs. Sterry beat Miss Sutton, 7-5, 6-0. 
(Her only defeat.) 

Beckenham — Final Round: Miss Sutton beat Miss Eastlake Smith, 
6-0, 6-1 . Challenge Round : Miss Sutton beat Mrs. Chambers, 6-2, 8-6. 
' Wimbledon — Women 's Championship of England— Challenge Round: 
Miss Sutton beat Mrs. Chambers (holder), 6-1, 6-4. 

Newport — Miss Sutton beat Miss Lowther, 6-0, 7-5, which ended 
her matches abroad. 

^Also^won'^the Mixed Doubles at Wimbledon with Mr. Beals Wright 
as a partner, which is quite an event in English tennis. 


The Champion 



HpHE ninth National Indoor Championship resulted in a remarkable 
* success; of 55 entries in Singles only three defaults were recorded. 
The record for Singles was 40 made last year, a gain of 11 teams in 
Doubles on the previous record brought the total up to 27 teams. It is 
believed that the interest in the indoor game stimulated by the Woman's 
Championship held a week or so earlier, helped the men's tournament 
a great deal. In 1900 there were only 16 men entered in the Singles 
and about eight teams in Doubles; it certainly looks as if indoor tennis 
has come to stay. 

In the Singles W. C. Grant achieved another triumph winning the 
Championship for the fourth time. Since 1902 Grant nas been in the 
Finals every year, four times Champion and three times runner-up, 
seven straight years, a truly wonderful performance considering the first 
class men who have competed for the title. It fell to Calhoun Cragin 
who has met Grant many times on the 7th Regiment Courts to give him 
a battle royal. Cragin won the first set, 7-5, led 5-4, 30-love on the 
second, only to lose set 7-5 and the third set at love. A surprise to all 
was the defeat of W. F. Johnson by Wertheim. Johnson came from 
Philadelphia and entered the tournament without any practice whatever. 

T. R. Pell lost his chance to have his name on the "7th Regiment 
Cup" for the second time, Grant defeating him, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2. Many 
people were surprised at this, but Grant following a comparatively 
easy victory over I. C. Wright the day before was right on his game. 

Hackett and Alexander as usual annexed the Doubles for the third 
straight year without any more trouble than in 1907, when they did not 
lose a set. The hardest fought match in the whole tournament was 
when W. B. Cragin, Jr., and M. S. Charlock defeated Calhoun and 
A. S. Cragin, 12-10, 5-7, 6-4. The Cragin Bros, were five times within 
a point of the first set and one game in the second set went to advantage 
eighteen times before it was won. Cragin and Charlock got to the 
Finals, where Hackett and Alexander defeated them, 6-3, 6-1, 6-4, and 
they played a closer match than was expected.

We have received many inquiries this spring regarding the playing 
for the Dwight Davis International bowl, which is now held by Australia. 
A few extracts from the regulations will, we hope, make matters clear as 

Any nation wishing to compete must inform the committee of the 
"Champion Nation" before the first Monday in March. Competing 
nations shall arrange among themselves for the playing of their re- 
spective "ties" or matches. If an agreement cannot be arrived at, the 
preliminary ties shall be played in the country of the " Champion Nation" 
at the time and date they see fit to select. Consequently this year if 
England and America cannot agree their "tie" must be played in Aus- 

Players do foot fault, some more than others and in all countries, 
especially England, new rules are trying to be put in force, but the pres- 
ent rule seems to be the most satisfactory. R. F. Doherty suggested to 
only allow one service. This might be a success with the leading players, 
but would be fatal with poor players and women.* There is little chance 
of there being any change from the present rule, this seems to be the gen- 
eral feeling with the players both in England and this country. They 
say the rule is good enough if only enforced. In other words, "it is up 
to the linesmen." Foot faults should only be called from the base line 
and not from the referee 's chair as is the case in many small tournaments. 

The Pacific States Association made a good move in having their 
Championship take place at Monterey (Hotel Del Monte), where the 
newly built courts are nicely situated with a good light, being an improve- 
ment over the old courts. The tournament of last year was one of the 
most successful ever held on the Pacific Coast and tne Championship of 
the coming season of 1908 promises to be more so. It is hoped some of 
the best players from the East will be present to play in the tournament. 

During the past summer the Omaha Field Club made a formal request 
to the National Association to have the Middle West tournament sanc- 
tioned as the "National Clay Court Championship." holding that the 


334 Lawn Tennis Notes 

clay court is peculiar to, and practically universal in the West, while there 
is considerable difference between the play on grass and on clay, the 
change from one to the other not being readily made. Straight hard 
hitting and placing being the characteristics of clay court tennis, the 
game is more athletic and at the same time speed enough to require the 
very best judgment. The week allotted to tne Omaha event coincides 
with the week of the National at Newport. For those who do not go to 
Newport, Omaha offers many advantages and there is no doubt that the 
prestige of a National Championship would do much for a greater inter- 
est and development of the game in the "Big West. " 

In answer to the above. .The question of instituting a Clay Court 
Championship of the United States came up at the February meeting 
of the United States National Lawn Tennis Association and a discussion 
brought forth the following motion: That the secretary be instructed 
to write to the Omaha Field Club and others which have asked for clay 
court events that the National Association is not in favor of the institu- 
tion of such a Championship. 

The Eastern Canadian Open Championship, to be held at Ottawa 
June 10 and following days, is a new Championship for Canada, and 
without doubt will be a great success. The events will be Men *s Singles 
and Doubles, Women's Singles and Doubles and probably Mixed 
Doubles. Ottawa is the home of the Canadian Champion, J. F. Foulkes. 

The Guide regrets to announce that the Wentworth tournament has 
been given up, this was one of the oldest tournaments, being held at 
Newcastle, N. H.,for the past twenty-five years, and the tournament 
where a majority of our best players started out to become future Cham- 

The Newport Casino committee are to be congratulated and thanked 
for the trouble they took and money expended to produce good courts 
and surroundings. Some players, we regret to say, do not appreciate 
the advantage of excellent dressing rooms and full privileges of the 
Casino. It will be still better this season. 

It is most pleasing to see the interest that the women are taking in the 
game. In a few years this is sure to produce good results; then we can 
consider a women's international event. 

Lawn Tennis Notes 335 

The ranking committee deserve nothing but praise for their results. 
It is a tiresome, thankless undertaking and they should be congratulated. 

It may be of interest to our readers to know that our present Champion, 
W. A. Lamed, has won the famous Longwood tournament nine out of 
the sixteen years it has taken place. 

In a letter to the United States National Lawn Tennis Association the 
women players of the United States have asked to be ranked, which no 
doubt will be done. 

The past three or four years a great interest has grown with the women 
players of this country in tournament play and they should be encouraged 
in every way by our men players. Mixed Doubles should be played 
more in our tournaments, it is quite a feature in all the English tourna- 

The committee of the United States National Lawn Tennis Associa- 
tion who have matters in hand concerning the Davis Cup and the Olym- 
pic games has voted that the Association shall take no part in the Olympic 
games officially. 

"The American Lawn Tennis," the official paper of the Association 
has run for one year and a more attractive ana interesting paper could 
not have been placed before the tennis players and the clubs, and those 
interested in the games should give it their hearty support by sending 
their subscription to S. W. Merrihew, 402 Times Building, Times Square, 
New York City. 

The promising young player Maurice McLaughlin, Champion of the 
Pacific Coast, has shown a fine record for the past season m winning 
the Pacific States Championships, Singles and Doubles, as well as San 
Francisco and the Bay Counties. If he keeps up his good play he should 
have a high ranking for the season of 1908. 

One of the first tournaments of the season is played on the courts of 
the'Coronado Country Club, Coronado Beach, CaL, February 19, where 
the, players have a very enjoyable week's tennis. Miss May Sutton won 
the Ladies' Singles, T. C. Bundy the Men's Singles and Mrs. Bruce and 
Bundy the Mixed Doubles.

The tennis men in general dress much more attractively on the court 
than they did a few years ago, when it was common for them to wear 
soiled trousers, shirts without collars, and frayed sleeves. One should 
be even more particular with dress on the court than on the street as 
they are more conspicuous and playing before ladies. 

The West Side Tennis Club, New York, will hold its next Metropolitan 
Championship on dirt, but in 1909 and the following years, it will prob- 
ably hold its Championships on its grass courts near van Courtland Park. 
It Mvill not, however, give up its present grounds, and intends to run both 
the old and new courts at the same time, and will put up a commodious 
club-house at the new grounds. 

It is most peculiar, yet nothing less than hard luck that in 1906 Clothier 
should win the Championship after Wright had been in the hospital all 
summer, and in 1907 that Clothier was unable to defend his title owing 
to an injured knee. 

Last spring an indoor invitation Men's Double and Mixed Double 
event was held in the St. Nicholas rink, New York, for the second time 
and proved a great success. The admission was entirely by invitation 
and all the matches were well attended, everybody being very much in- 
terested. For the success of this event the work of Mrs. Barger-Wallach 
was greatly appreciated as the entire tournament was run with as much 
care as a national event. 

From all reports the tennis on the Pacific Coast is increasing, conse- 
quently the standard of play must be. The Coast should send a Doubles 
team Kast to compete in the Championship, then all sections would be 
represented. Let us hope for this m fc 1909. 

I>ast summer Von Wessel, the crack German player, expressed his 
opinion of visiting America this summer. He will be well received and 
show a style similar to that of Behr. 

Brookes has returned to Australia with a record to be proud of as a 
singles player. Wilding has been playing in Southern France the past 

Lawn Tennis Notes 3S7 

Among our promising younger players are Niles and Dabney, who are 
undergraduates at Harvard, Sweetzer, Mathey and Johnson, freshmen 
at Harvard, Princeton and University of Pennsylvania, McLaughlin and 
Long of California, Ross of Chicago, Hayes of the Middle West, Thornton 
and Cowan Rodgers of the South and Tyler of the Northwest. All 
these players have shown good form and played with success during 1907 
and if they continue, in a few years should rank among the first ten players 
of this country. 

Tennis courts are being put in almost all the armories of the big cities 

and with great success. This will promote indoor play and it is hoped 

' that in the United States the leading players will soon enter the indoor 

Championships. In England they receive practically the same list of 

entries for covered court Championships as they do for outdoor. 

In England, at some of the large tournaments they have a veteran's 
event, open to men of fifty and over and for every five years a handicap 
must be given. There are two veterans sixty-five and seventy-five years 
old respectively, who play annually in the Eastbourne tournament. 
Our association will no doubt soon come to this, although it seems un- 
necessary in two cases. D. D. McLaughlin of Butte, Montana, won the 
State Championship in 1906 and 1907, competing against some good 
men. Mr. McLaughlin is fifty-five years old. Again we find that Dr. 
Whitney, who is fifty-one years old, is Champion of Colorado and reached 
the Finals in the Middle West Championship. 

The Queens Club, London, is without doubt the leading club of its 
kind. The grounds are large and some fifty perfect grass courts could 
be laid out. Many Championships are held there and on the two wood 
or covered courts trie indoor Championship always takes place. In addi- 
tion there are squash, racquet and court tennis courts. For each sport 
there is a capable professional to instruct the novice; in lawn tennis, 
H. Cowdrey, and Peter Latham in tennis^and racquets. 

During tbe past year the Lawn Tennis ranks have been thinned out 
by deaths of the following lovers and supporters of the game: 

George DeCamp of the Cincinnati Tennis Club diedjlast spring from 
a severe cold he caught, which brought death in a very short time from 
pneumonia. He was secretary of the club and it was through him that 

3S8 Lawn Tennis Notes 

the great interest was brought about in the game in Cincinnati. George, 
as they all called him, was a general favorite with the members of his dub 
and those interested in the* game. I 

Edward P. Rapelyea, of Elmira, N. Y., died suddenly of pneumonia 
last December, after an illness of only a few days. 

In the passing away of Mr. Rapelyea, lawn tennis in New York state 
suffers a severe loss. He was secretary and one of the leading spirits 
of the Elmira Tennis Club, and his interest in the game was very teen. 

Frederick J. Sheridan, reporter for the^Boston^Herald, died at his i 
home, Brighton, Mass., last February. j 

Mr. Sheridan had reported all of the national tennis tournaments for | 
the Herald since 1890. He was generally acknowledged to be the ablest j 
writer on tennis in America. He knew personally all of the better players 
who have figured in the game in the past 18 years. He was sent to Eng- 
land by his paper upon the visit of the first International team and his 
accounts of the matches were read with interest by tennis public. 


In making a Lawn Tennis Court there should be, if 
possible, a clear marginjof at least 12 feet on each side 
and 21'Jfeet at each end of the court, or, between adjacent 
courts, 18 feet on each side; but should the courts be placed 
end to end, or end to side, there should be spaces of 42 
feet or 33 feet respectively, and a back-net at least 8 feet 
high between. 

The cheapest and most easy court to make is a 

Clay Court 

It is done by removing the sward from the lawn, taking 
care that the same is cut deep enough not to allow any of 
the grass roots to remain; there should be a space dug out 
118 feet by 56 and about 6 or ten inches deep, fill in with 
yellow clay and cover with i-inch of carefully sifted bind- 
ing gravel, taking out all small stones to the size of a pea, 
wet well and roll into the foundation of clay, if the court 
continues to be soft or sticky spread more binding gravel 
over it, and continue to roll until the clay and gravel com- 
mences to bind and becomes firm. The maker of the 
court will have to use his own best judgment about this, 
as it's hard to decide the exact quantities of clay and bind- 
ing gravel that should be used to cause the court to have 
the proper firmness. 

In making the court there should be a gradual slope 
from the base lines to the centre, running across the court 
between the net posts should be built a blind drain, this is 
done to take off the water after a heavy rain. 

A stone foundation is bad for a court as it becomes hard 
and dry and severe on a player's feet and legs to play on. 

Grass Courts 

These can be made in three ways: namely, first, by 

improving an existing stretch of turf until it is level 

• and smooth enough, second by leveling the ground, 




preparing the soil, and sowing grass Beeds ; and third, 
by laying fresh turf . Of these the former is of course 
the simplest ; but as the requisite piece of grass land 
is rarely available, particulars for preparing it are 
seldom required. In improving such a piece of turf 
care should be taken to remove all weeds or coarse 
grasses, and to freely use the spirit-level. To raise 
hollow places the turf should be cut out, lifted, and 
fine soil placed underneath until the proper height 
has been obtained, when the turf should be replaced 
and well beaten down with the fiat side of a spade. 
On the other hand, small mounds should be removed 
by taking the soil away from under the grass, some 
fine mould being placed underneath the turf before 
it is replaced. To prepare a court for sowing seeds 
the same instructions may be followed as for making 
a turf- laid one, except that the seed will be sown 
instead of the turfs laid. Take care that the seed is 
good by purchasing from a first-class seedsman, and, 
when ordering, it will be well to state what sort of 
soil is to be sown. By far the larger number of 
courts are made by laying fresh turfs. 

When preparing the ground for a court, it is de- 
sired to level a portion measuring 100 x 50 feet, 
which allows an ample margin ; but for the playing 
portion itself only 78 x 36 feet is necessary. If 
economy must be strictly considered only the latter 
need be carefully prepared, but it is better to hav# 
the whole done if possible. 


As a double court practicably includes every line to 
be found in a single court, it is best to take first the 
measure for the latter. Having determined the posi- 
tion of your net, plant in the pround, in the line 
chosen, two pegs, 27 feet apart (ai the points A and 
B in the diagram). Then take two measures and 
attach their respective ends to the pegs A and B. On 
the first, which will measure the diagonal of the court, 
take a length of 47 ft. 5 in. ; on the other 39 ft. ; pull 
both taut in such directions that at these distances 
they meet in a point C. This will give one corner of 
the court. At that point F, 21 feet from B, put in a 



How to Mask Out a Court 

peg to mark the end of die service-fine. The other 
corner, D, and the other end of the service-line G, 
may be found by interchanging the measures and re- 
peating the process. The same measurements on the 
other side of the net will complete the exterior bound- 
aries of the court. By prolonging the base-line 4 ft. 
6 in. in each direction, and joining the four new points 
thus obtained, we can make the side-lines of a double 
court. It only remains to mark the central line. This 
is done by joining the middle points of the service- 
lines. If a double court alone be required, the inte- 
rior side-lines need not be prolonged to meet the base- 
lines. Remember that in all cases the net-posts must 
stand at a distance of three feet from the side-fines.

Championship Canvas Center Strap 

This is a new device for holding center of net at regulation 
height, 3 feet, and is vastly superior to the ordinary center iron. 
It serves the purpose intended perfectly, does not chafe the net. 
and cannot possibly cause the ball to glance off and strike out 
of court, as is occasionally the case with a center iron. It is 
fitted with a turnbuckle, with which height of net can be ad- 
justed to a hair. Very desirable for tournament or match games.

How to Lay Out a Tennis Court with Marking Tapes 

""HIS illustration shows single court. To make a double 
court, run parallel line A\ feet distant from line G to 
E, and from F to D, and extend base lines H and I to same. 
The court is 78 feet long and 27 feet wide. It is divided 
across the middle by a net, the ends of which are attached 
to two posts, A and B, standing three feet outside of the court 
on either side. The height of the net is three feet 6 inches 
at the posts and 'three feet in the middle. At each end of 
the court, parallel with the net, and 39 feet from it, are 
drawn the base lines, D E and F G, the ends of which are 
connected by the side lines D F and E G. Half way between 
the side lines and parallel with them, is drawn the half court 

i I H, dividing the space on either side of the net into : two equal^arts, the right and left courts. On each side 
he net. at a distance of twenty-one feet from it, and parallel with it, are drawn the service lines, K L and M N.
